Pretty scary when..

the weather guy tells you on THURSDAY that in 2 days (Saturday & Sunday) we will be in a blizzard warning!! I found it VERY hard to believe yesterday while the kids & I were outside w/o coats on blowing bubbles and the kids were riding their scooters up/down the road. The weather was WONDERFUL! But believe it or not, for once, the weatherman was right. It has been sooo windy all day today and now it's starting to really lightly snow. I don't know how much snow we're actually going to get, but I think the wind is what the real concern is. Even a little tiny bit of snow makes visibility really difficult when the winds are blowing this hard. Amazing what a difference 24 hours can make.

Dh & I were going to take the kids to the movie today. One of the local churches where sponsoring a free movie day for families. The movie was "Barnyard". We took the kids to this movie several months ago, but we thought we'd take advantage of the free offer. We loaded everyone in the car. Braved the winds (no snow at this time) and drove to the theatre-only to find a sign on the door that said "Closed due to weather. "Barnyard" is rescheduled for next Saturday." Dh looked at me and said "Why didn't you call before hand?" I said "I did! Their answering machine said NOTHING about them being closed." We were very upset to say the least, they (theatre management) could of gotten off their asses and drove down to the theatre and put a change of plans on their answering machine rather then forcing parents to drag their kids outside on a really, really windy and cold day.
