I am apparently on the Naughty List.
This is, of course, the only explanation for the large amounts of snow and rain that have hit Northeast Iowa. Our expected trip to Dubuque has been postponed until the chances of us sliding off the road, crashing into a ditch, and surviving for three days on Gingerbread Men and melted snow until a snowplow driver stumbles across us are reduced.
In a word – bummer. I haven’t seen any of my family in almost three months (since returning from Viable Paradise actually) so I was looking forward to it.
Still, in the spirit of the season, some good may come out of this. Some of Steph’s friends aren’t able to make it home for the holidays either. She’s invited them over for a Christmas Eve dinner so that we won’t be alone tonight nor will they.
So from ours to yours, Happy Holidays.
