Ice, Ice, Baby!

This is what I woke up to this morning.....ICE! I started backing my Charger out of the garage to take Cassie to school & when I saw the ice on the trees, I asked her if she just wanted to stay home today. Her reply: "Dumb question, Mom!" :) So back into the garage the car went. The roads are only supposed to get worse as the day progresses, too. Eventually, this ice is going to turn into snow later today, so it looks like the perfect day to stay home & either scrap or work on Christmas gifts.
My Weeping Cherry tree is weeping a little more than usual with the ice on it. I'm not too worried about my trees making it as we had a worse ice storm than this back in April of 2004 & everything survived. But then again, it melted quicker back then, too. Now it's not supposed to get above the 30's for the next week, so I guess we'll just have to wait & see.
I just hope that this storm moves quickly out of here as tomorrow night, Jim & I have tickets to go see Carlos Mencia in Ann Arbor :) We can't wait! We've been looking forward to seeing him since the tickets went on sale back in May. We'll be going with another couple from Jim's work, so it should be a blast! And hopefully, I'll be able to take my camera in & get some good pictures.

Bundle up & stay warm!
