Earlier this week the weather turned colder. Today we woke up to snow. Not a lot of snow but enough to close schools for the day. It really doesn't take much snow to close schools in our county, it's still largely rural and if the school buses can't navigate those back roads everyone stays home.
I could have predicted this colder weather months ago if anyone had asked. How did I know it would get colder? It's Girl Scout Cookie time, of course. We're doing the advance sales now, taking orders for cookies to be delivered at the end of February. The same thing happened last year. During the two weeks plus that we do the advance sales the weather last year was probably the coldest of the winter...except for the one day that we were doing a booth sale in front of the local grocery store. People just don't want to stop and peruse the cookie selection when their fingers and toes are going numb from the cold.
I hope the weather turns warmer soon. I'm just now beginning to recover from whatever disease I've had and have no desire to take my daughter around the neighborhood to sell cookies in this weather. I know that being cold doesn't make you get sick but after feeling miserable every day of the year so far, I'm not looking for new ways to feel uncomfortable.Posted by marybeth at January 10, 2004 01:13 AM Other Stuff
