Ice, Ice Baby

I'm showing my age but when I hear there is an approaching ice storm I always bust out the lyrics to that long-forgotten song by wanna-be-rapper, Vanilla Ice. I remember thinking he was the coolest rapper in rap. He represented a way to bridge the gap between two cultures that had been deeply divided for so long and we clung to him in an effort to show we were cool, too. Boy, that blew up in our faces, huh? Regardless of those uneasy feelings I still break into that song when I hear that we have an ice storm heading our way. Call me corny (my kids sure do) but I still think about being 17 and finally understanding all the hype about rap, LOL!

So we are at home this morning while the schools were initially delayed and then closed. Dedicated me got up and worked out at 5am thinking I would have some time to myself after I finished. My son decided to go ahead and get up willingly at 7am though I usually have to drag him up. There goes my quiet time........ I have to e-mail work again and tell them I won't be late after all but working from home all day. Is it spring yet??
