Here I go breaking my rule on writing about family, but this was too cute not to share. The photo was taken on a from behind the wheel going down a secondary county road this weekend.
Yesterday morning I was driving my daughter to school. School had been closed on Monday as we were still getting snow and the low that morning was -15 F (-26 C). By comparison, Tuesday was a balmy 0 F (-18 C), according to the thermometer on my truck mirror. Tuesday morning my daughter was happy and she made up a little song which she sang over and over that went when something like this:
Zippity Do-dah, Zippity Day, it’s only zero out today.
This morning the temperature had dropped back down to -6 F. It was cold; she was running late. I turned up NPR on the radio and as they covered the state news, they listed a number of school districts that were still closed due to weather. This didn’t make my daughter happy and she yelled:
It’s not fair. We only got one day off of school and they’re going to be off all week. That’s not fair!What a difference a makes. Or maybe it’s the temperature.
