Snow Day

We woke up this morning to several inches of snow with more falling by the hour. I'd estimate about 5" so far. The worst part about the weather is that J had to make his way down to Memphis today for some training that starts tomorrow morning. A friend picked him up this morning about 10:30 and they made it to the airport just fine but, one by one, all his flight possibilities are being canceled. It won't be a good thing at all if he can't make it but I'm not sure what else he can do short of driving down there which is probably just as chancy at this point.

I had a 9am appointment this morning but my midwife called about 8. She lives about 20 minutes from town and she said she was just closing the office today. I talked to her briefly about the varicose veins. She said the first thing to try is laying down 3 times a day for at least an hour with my legs slightly elevated above my heart. She also recommended ice or heat packs if they get painful. She didn't seem too concerned about them beyond the fact that I would be uncomfortable or in pain for a while. So I'm trying to figure out how to lay down 3 times a day for an hour. J said I couldn't count sleeping at night! Easy for him to say!

As soon as G saw all the snow this morning she wanted to go outside. I took her out for about an hour. She threw a fit when I said it was time to go in but we were both snow-encrusted. All she did was run around in the snow and fall down and bury herself in it. I think this kid is going to be a snow-bunny! She wants to go sledding but I'm pretty sure going up and down a hill is out of the question for me!

This snow storm is crazy! It's all ice here right now, so the snow is getting a lovely slick crust on it. I think it's going to be snow again tonight.

I'll probably let Cordy play in it tomorrow, once I know she's over this virus.
