Indianapolis has been somewhat paralyzed by the recent heavy snow fall and freezing temperatures we've had this week. I would say we got at least a foot of snow! Plows were able to clear all of the roads, but the sub zero temperatures are preventing the salt from melting the ice, so the roads continue to be quite treacherous.
I won't be taking my two Purdue students back until the freeways are showing pavement again. Fortunately they still have a week of break left anyway. My high school student is enjoying an extra two days of winter break, since his school has been cancelled due to the extreme cold. Even my husband and oldest daughter had two days off of work.
With such a full house, this Christmas vacation is turning out to be a lot longer than I expected!
The birds are all doing fine down in their snug basement bird room where the temperature never fluctuates. But our two outdoor cats have been spending their nights inside our mudroom. I just didn't trust that their insulated cat house or our garage would keep them warm enough.
