Well, not in ALASKA, of course . . . no, my friends. It snowed TWENTY INCHES in Columbus, Ohio. This is important because . . . that is where we are headed next Sunday!
Oh, the smirks and laughter we are experiencing. Oh, the pain of it all. Seriously – we are melting at a rapid rate here in ALASKA, while out there in the midwest it SNOWED TWENTY INCHES.
Never fear – we DO know how to drive in the white stuff (unlike some Ohioans we’ve seen on the tv) and, we’ll make sure that the rental car has all sorts of insurance – for our protection, of course.
Not to mention that it will probably ALL be gone by the time we arrive next Sunday noonish.
We are taking our oldest granddaughter with us. She and I were supposed to go to Washington, D.C. for spring break – and the trip was cancelled. So, with the same amount of money I had spent and gotten refunded we are able to all go – grandpa, the Girl and me. It will cover the airfare, hotel AND car rental. (are we thinking the DC trip is a tad overpriced? No, that actually covers all DC transportation, lodging, food, and admissions – so it’s all equal, I guess)
Juneau was great – I walked a LOT – up and down the big hill from the hotel to the Capitol building and to the office where our meetings were being held. Visited with one of my legislators and spoke to the staff of the other two. Unfortunately, it would seem they are pretty set in their way and the hoped for funds will not be coming through. That is sad – as it affects 20 dv agencies. I can’t imagine status quo – most likely people around the state are going to be let go. Or our insurance coverage rates will go up. Or . . . too much to think about.
But, I did enjoy the trip – right up to coming home when the planes were being grounded for this or that – I left Juneau 2 hours late – missed my flight in Anchorage – got another flight – left an hour later than it was supposed to leave – then they forgot to put my bag on that flight. So it sat in Anchorage for a couple more hours before they could get it down here.
All in a day’s work in Alaska.
unlike Ohio . . .
where they had TWENTY INCHES OF SNOW!
