We've gone from one extreme to another with weather; from -20F to +29F in two days! Welcome to Wisconsin!
Presently sleet is falling from the sky. There are all kinds of warnings on TV about slippery roads, urging people not to go out if they don't have to. The ice and/or rain stretches from the southern border of Wisconsin midway up the state and is expected to change over to all rain tomorrow. Crazy! Three days ago we were hibernating because the night time wind chill factor was -50 and daytime temperatures were -10 with a -30 wind chill..
Which leads me to the Mother Hen thing. Our daughter and son-in-law are 40ish and certainly not young children. But they are still our chicks, and I do worry about them when the weather is bad. They both take major 4-lane highways to and from work and I knew they would be slippery! So tonight I just had to call them. SIL happened to answer his cell and was very good natured about it tonight, but I know some times when I call to check in, they get a little irritated and really don't understand why I do it. Guess I'm just a mother hen because I like to know that the chicks are safe. They are all we have left!
I freely admit it - I'm a Mother Hen!
Until next time,
