I only stuck my head out once today just to take this photo! The sleet/freezing rain started up in the middle of the night, and we had ice covering the roads before the sun was up. Word came via email while I was still in bed with the news that the college WAS CLOSED for the day. That is a very rare event, and I was so relieved. My hubby asked me if I knew how to put my Jeep into four-wheel drive. (Not really, ha, but it wouldn't have mattered anyhow because it was not going to leave the garage!)
I want to shout out my sincere thanks and appreciation to all of the men and women law enforcement officers, fire fighters, and Town road crews who are out working in our community today!
My good friend Sharon in Nebraska asked if I was prepared for the huge blizzard coming our way. It doesn't really blizzard in North Carolina. Blizzard equals wind, and a gust of 10 mph is a big deal here. I'd take that over the ice any day, though.
|RM, this is for you!|
It's going to be a lovely three days hibernating and getting ready for the Panthers game on Sunday evening. The whole city is ready!

It is Charlotte Restaurant Week again, and the only disappointing thing with the storm is that we've had to cancel our dinner plans for tonight and tomorrow night, but we can easily reschedule.
