Bah Humbug


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.

Oh poop! So sorry that your plans didn't work out due to that ol' wench, Mother Nature!

I'm so sorry. That is such a bummer...especially not getting to see the family. We were very fortunate that the ones that had to travel got here before our big snow. Glad you were still able to enjoy the day.

Sorry to hear that your family wasn't able to get together. I do agree I'd rather be in my home that stranded at an airport, or on a roadside. I think of this time between Christmas and New Year's as just more Christmas. Enjoy!

Oh, that is indeed a downer...gosh, of ALL the times for a blizzard to hit!!! Wah! But I'd rather you be bummed than hurt in an accident on an icy road...scary weather up there...
