three things thursday

1.  We had our first “major” snow last night/this morning in St. Louis.  We only got about an inch of snow, but enough to not only have several schools have snow days (not mine, of course) but to cause huge traffic delays because of the icy conditions.

2.  My morning commute that usually takes all of 35 to 40 minutes, with traffic, took me 3 hours.  This would be like driving from St. Louis to Kansas City, across the state.  My butt killed when I finally made it to school and got out of my car.  The only good part about it was that I had a chance to pump in the car.

3.  Matt’s school district was called off.  He works about 15 minutes away from home.  I work 35 minutes away and still had to go in.  How is this fair?  But, this also means it’s his first day at home with MacKenna by himself.  Hopefully she behaves herself for him!

How long was your commute this morning, or on a regular morning?  Do you have to deal with snow days where you live?

  • I live in Louisville, KY and I always pay attention to the weather in St. Louis because we tend to get that line of storms or whatever coming up here. It’s just starting to snow now so we’ll see if any schools get closed tomorrow! I work for a University and my husband works for the public school system so sometimes he’s off and I’m not ;)

    We very rarely get snow here in Atlanta but we do get ice storms and the city freaks out. Last year we had a major ice storm and I literally could not drive down my street and go to work for three days!

  • My regular commute is 20 minutes or so. This morning was snowy and slick (we got about 6 inches of snow) so it was longer. Thankfully Hubby and I rode in together so he drove :)
