Get home safely, chrelsey.Originally Posted by chrelsey;2208432;Sorry that you didn't get to see the snow, MRD but I'm glad that you won't have to worry with being frozen in with the ice, either.
My good news - I'm finally getting to go home today! We have been stuck down here at our new house because the roads between here and our home south of Dallas have been too icy. They are predicting more freezing rain starting tonight through Saturday, so we have a brief weather window to get back home.
My daughter, who is 17, has been home by herself last weekend and this past week through the worst of the weather. I have felt INCREDIBLY guilty for leaving her alone in all of the mess, but of course she's been fine, it's just me being a "mom" that has worried about her. The one time she did lose power we called the electric company for her to report it and they had it back up and running within a couple of hours. It's not that I could have done anything differently had I been home with her, but still, I feel really guilty.
Of course, she reminds me that when she graduates in six months, she's off to 19 weeks of boot camp (she has already enlisted in the Army National Guard), and that she's perfectly fine of taking care of herself, but I remind her that for the next six months I still get to be protective of her - whether she likes it or not!
