Our family Christmas was called off today because of icy roads and travel warnings. This is the first time we have ever had to cancel our get-together and needless to say, I'm really bummed.
Several of my adult grandsons were home for Christmas and now I won't get to see them before they leave. I'm really disappointed about that.
But, there must be hundreds of thousands of bummed-out folks around the country. On TV they showed hordes of miserable people trapped for days in airports with no hope of reaching their destination. At least I was snug in my home with lots and lots of food. We had the neighbors over to share some of it and that has helped ward off "cabin fever".
Now we get to enjoy the contented lull between Christmas and New Years.
