Once upon a time in a week otherwise known as Way Too Overwhelming, Mother Nature decided to give us a snow storm. And before this story advances any further, on behalf of my car with over 175,000 miles and my cardiovascular system
It all began Tuesday night, a night that was supposed to be spent at King and Queen High School watching a basketball game after a day of work and then physical therapy for my aching back. Instead?
Game cancelled. No need to drive anywhere. Instead I worked on the federal financial aid forms that are due for my son's college experience. A trip to the dentist might have been an easier task to complete but would have required driving. Anyway, I got that
The next morning I awoke to the glorious gift of no work, no school, college financial aid forms complete and no place to be, nowhere to go.

Mother Nature's gift keeps on giving, because school and lots of things that would otherwise require driving long distances are also on hold today.
And for this I am eternally grateful.
