winter returns

The boys' school district issued the first snow day of the year yesterday. And today, a two hour delay. IN MARCH.

I drove to work yesterday morning at 10am in near white-out conditions. And you'd be surprised (or maybe you wouldn't) what purchases people deem necessary during a snowstorm. I was told that the first customer of the day purchased six candy bars. That's it.

Believe me, it was not a very profitable day for our store in that little (7,000+) town.

Hopefully today will be better. And hopefully road conditions are improved also.

At least Caleb can get in a little cartoon time before school. haha.
