Staying in place

We had horribly cold and windy night last night. No school again in our area. This is the 5th time for dangerously cold weather. Kids will be making up school til the 4th of July.

My son is a Fireman/EMT in the county that he lives in. He was suppose to work today, but the County Sheriff  has ordered no travel within the county. He has in the past gone up the night before and slept at the station, but not sure if he did last night.

They had 40 cars in the ditches and they had not been able to get to all the cars as of 5 am this morning. It was snowing sideways and the 45 MPH gusts of wind on top of it was horrible.

We have an appointment about 30 miles away today, but I think I'm going to reschedule it. We have to go out in the country to get there and we can't afford to be stranded. Good day to stay inside and finish the quilting on the baby quilt. Hope everyone is warm. Chris

UPDATE: Just heard from my son and he was out with the Fire Department half the night trying to locate people that were stranded in their cars. Our towns around here are saying stay home do not travel. Wind speeds of up to 53 MPH were gusting through here and you can imagine fresh snow is blown everywhere. Tonight to get even colder. Stay safe. Chris
