We were supposed to go to the city today, to join family for a big meal in honor of Chinese New Year. It's an early celebration, because Ma and Gong will be in Thailand for the real deal.
But the weather intervened. Even with the temperature above freezing, there is black ice everywhere. It took us an hour to go barely a town over . . .and then the highway closed. So we stopped, ate a big pancake breakfast, and headed home.
It's foggy and rainy and slushy, perfect day for staying in.
We'll try to get together another time.
In related news: ice is great when it's hockey, which we saw last night in a terrible blow-out game; we had fun anyway.
