It's HAIL out there. Or was. It looks like actual snow now. I left to get M from school, and it was hailing. With slushy crap on the streets. Little bits of ice coming down, ice on my windows. The driver-side door is frozen shut.
Partially to M's school, she calls me (she can't use her cell phone during school hours, of course). "Can I go to (friends) house?" I had her confirm with the friends mom first, and then called back to remind her to bring home her medical form for the New York trip. She feels she has a week still, but it requires the pediatrician to sign it, meaning by this Friday, so that M can have her inhaler with her.
A woman at the bank works at one of the local middle schools. I overheard her saying that the first lunch shift had to be served at 10:10 a.m. I suppose that the schools can count it as a full day if the students eat lunch. Of course, they start their day so doggone early. I get back outside. There are icicles on the vehicle closest to the door. Then I see iciciles on my vehicle.
I call Boss to see if he wants me to pick up some lunch for him, too. He responds with a no, thanks, as he has to go by the store, anyway, to pick up a card. I pause. Just "a" card? His wife and two girls are really into birthdays. I KNOW they'd also be really into Valentine's Day. Roses or flowers would freeze traveling today.... "Maybe you can pick up some chocolates or something, too." "Or something."
I come back in to hear several saying that our office is going to be let out early. Crazy getting word out once it's official. (At this point, we're closed, just M is over her friends playing.)
I quiz Boss -- the girls got gifts already, Crocs they've been begging for, and he has a thoughtful, small but thoughtful, gift for his wife. Okay, good:)
I don't want hail. I want SNOW! Of course, I could still get it. I hope:)
