The phone rang last night at 6:30 and caller ID said Poudre School District. I held my breath as I answered and listened to the recorded message and then let out a celebratory yelp when it said that all schools would be closed the next day due to severe weather. The weather stations had predicted highs today of 6 to 8 degrees below zero and lows tonight of 15-20 degrees below with wind chill to minus 35. It has turned out not to be nearly as bad as predicted and Ean and I just got back from a very nice 5 mile run around the park and in to Pineridge under sunny skies and a balmy 6 degrees with only gentle breezes. This was a welcome day off on a not so Cold Day.
