Surfs Up


Who needs an ocean? Logan is surfing our snow covered driveway at this very moment. Ben is patiently (?) waiting his turn. Today is gorgeous. A couple of inches of snow have fallen on top of the ice, so driving is treacherous and very few people are on the road. It's quiet and peaceful. No school for the second day in a row. On snow days we can't go anywhere, and we just hunker down, play board games, watch TV, play with the dogs, read, and eat cozy food.

Here's yesterday's dire forecast that resulted in today's winter wonderland:

A WINTER STORM WARNING REMAINS IN EFFECT UNTIL MIDNIGHT CST
TONIGHT.
AREAS OF FREEZING RAIN AND SLEET...HEAVY AT TIMES...WILL CONTINUE
TO TRACK OUT OF EASTERN OKLAHOMA AND NORTHWEST ARKANSAS INTO SOUTH
CENTRAL MISSOURI. THE FREEZING RAIN HAS BEEN ACCUMULATING AT A
RATE OF A TENTH OF AN INCH PER HOUR IN SOME LOCATIONS OVER SOUTH
CENTRAL MISSOURI.
FREEZING RAIN AND SLEET WILL LIKELY CONTINUE
THROUGH MUCH OF THE AFTERNOON INTO THE EVENING HOURS WITH
ADDITIONAL ICE ACCUMULATIONS OF A HALF TO THREE QUARTERS OF AN
INCH AND SLEET AND SNOW ACCUMULATIONS OF 1 TO 2 INCHES POSSIBLE
BEFORE THE PRECIPITATION COMES TO AN END EARLY WEDNESDAY.
A WINTER STORM WARNING MEANS SIGNIFICANT AMOUNTS OF SNOW...
SLEET...AND ICE ARE EXPECTED OR OCCURRING. STRONG WINDS ARE ALSO
POSSIBLE. THIS WILL MAKE TRAVEL VERY HAZARDOUS OR IMPOSSIBLE.
