Storm Kayla

Tonight we'll find out if Omaha is going to be hit hard with snow. I guess this storm is called Kayla. I knew they named hurricanes, but I never knew they named snow storms. I guess they do now.

So far I don't feel too much panic. Except for the fact that I already got the call that the boy's school is off. My sister said her boy's school was called off to. We don't even have a flake in the air yet... It's better to be safe than sorry. Busses can't drive in the stuff, and kids shouldn't be waiting for the bus in extreme weather. 

Besides the storm the big talk is that Jim Canton is here in Omaha. He's the weather man on The Weather Channel. I admit I had to look up who he is. If he's here it must be big. 

I did get all my errands ran over the weekend. We have all the necessities. I forgot a few things, so I ran out during my lunch break today to get more. 

Isaak was super excited that I got new shovels. Now that Mica is a better help in the shoveling department we needed another adult shovel. I got a shovel just for Isaak to. He was giddy jumping all excited like when he picked it out.

My husband's work told him that they may not have work. He works at a dental lab. Dentist offices , patients, and delivery drivers cancel. A snow day may happen for him. If not, it's ok that he brings the kids to work at times like this. I have a few busy baskets for the boys. Mainly putting together their Valentines (one MadLib card, one MadLib, one pencil, and one heart chocolate). They have their Valentine boxes to decorate as well. Then they'll have their Kindles, DS, flashcards, and munchies. 

I'm supposed to teach Tuesday and Wednesday. Regardless staff is to report. Fun times! Not! It is what it is. If it's really bad I'll just take a vacation day. 

Are you supposed to get snow where you are at?

If I don't blog for awhile it's because we've lost power. It's supposed to be really windy.

Stay safe! It's crazy, we are having spring-like weather here right now. We usually get hit hard, but it seems like it's just blowing right past us this year.

Be careful. I hope we get some cold weather here... it was very VERY SHORT and not really a winter at all

I hope you stayed safe during the storm yesterday! Did you get much snow?
It's unusually warm in Germany right now, it feels like spring. I'd rather have some more snow before the winter is over :)
Stay safe and I hope if you did get snow it's rather enjoyable than annoying :)
Have a wonderful week!
Lots of hugs to you,

Thanks everyone. We were without power for 1/2 the day. It was a white out, so I didn't go into work. What's the point if the power was out anyhow? We played Monopoly and I won. :)

I'm sorry to hear the storm is coming/came. I hope you're buttoned down and safe. It's nice that your husband can take the kids to work if he has to do so.

Careful driving!

The kids had no school on friday, but we only got 6-7 inches. We are getting another 5-8 tomorrow, so I am betting that they have no school again.
