Brrrrr!

Cold - it's cold here. In Alaska, they don't cancel recess until it's 20 below zero. Here in Pittsburgh, they cancel school if it's going to be 2 below zero! I can't say I'm upset - we haven't had a snow day for years. We just don't get that really cool 24 inches at one time like we used to when I was a kid. So having a delay is even a novelty - one we had today. I'm not sure I understand why we have no school tomorrow - all I know is I don't have to get up at 6am! For four full days - we have Martin Luther King day off, too. I remember walking to school after ice storms, etc. But, as the story goes, I walked to school in freezing weather with snow and ice uphill both directions... it was different then. I hope we aren't developing a generation who can't take care of themselves. I try not to do that - but the fact that there's the moniker "helicopter parents" tells me different...

On another topic, tomorrow I'm going to tell you about a wonderful person I know who makes great silver findings and more. Stay tuned...
