Apparently, the state of Kentucky is simply skipping today. Late yesterday afternoon, schools starting cancelling classes because old man winter decided that we should be colder than Alaska. Seriously, there is a potential to have a -20 below wind chill factor while the state of polar bears is a balmy 30 degrees.
I believe I missed the instructional classes that would prepare me for hell freezing over. Was there a test? I notice that my Bassets want to go out more often when cold isn’t even a strong enough word to describe the temperature. Their ability to simply “cop-a-squat” is lost on them and they “explore” the yard for the ideal spot. Maybe the class that I missed on hell freezing over included guidelines for helping your pets use inside plumbing.
In the state of Kentucky, we go big or go home. I have already established that my goal is going home, but the Bluegrass state has a different approach. Our state shuts down for two things……winter and the greatest two minutes in sports – The Kentucky Derby.
So, today we are closed for business. Be sure to check back with us next Monday when the high is slated to be around 60. I will be happy when Mother Nature goes back to rehab, but now I can check off “experience hell freezing over” off of my bucket list.
