Today was our first real snow day! And it snowed all day, and it’s still snowing tonight. I was up early with anticipation of the beginning flurries to start, even though it wasn’t scheduled to start until 1 pm, but it began at 11 and by 4 pm there was at least 3 inches of snow.
I was getting ready to leave for training at the election office and Mike decided he wanted to do his mail in ballot and he began to fill it out. We spent a bit of time going over the information form, and we called someone we knew to clarify a few things for us. When Mike got to the end and he was ready to sign his name, he couldn’t remember how to form the letters. I ended up having to write his name out for him to watch, so he could remember how to do it. The ballot ended up being totally messed up, and Mike took the jeep and left to do early voting at the election office. The snow was slick and I was concerned about him going out by himself, but I had to get ready for my training.
The training went 2 1/2 hours, and there is a lot to it, and I feel I could use another 2 1/2 hours minimum to fully understand. The trainer offered to allow us to show up at the election office and be able to do actual work to prepare us for November 3rd. I just may take them up on that offer this coming week.
It was still snowing when I left the training and the roads were very slippery – and it was difficult to see the lines to stay in my lane! But there were vehicles going the wrong way on 1 way roads, there was a vehicle on my left, on a two lane road, to turn left! Fortunately there was hardly any traffic, I’m sure weather related. When I got to the house, I stopped to take a photo of a tree in the front yard.
As I walked into the house, Mike greeted me with a hug and he had a cup of hot tea waiting for me AND he cleaned the kitchen!! WOW. It’s been a great day. Have a good evening.
