The ice storm that started on Monday gave me two unexpected vacation days in a row. For my wife, it meant she didn’t have to use a sick day.
The precipitation began while I was taking my wife to the drug store for some medicine. She was scheduled to be off for President’s Day. I was supposed to go to work that afternoon but the roads were already slick by the time I would have gone in.
On Tuesday, her office was closed due to the road conditions. The radio station was open but I stayed home rather than attempt driving on an ice-covered hill.
