8:30 a.m. - Here we go again. Only this time, snow didn't get us: lots of ice did.
When you vote, they give you little badges that say something like "I voted today", or "Exercise the right... vote". Ads, especially for younger voters announce "It's the right of all Americans... VOTE!" and I even saw one that said "Good Americans vote for leaders, causes, and issues." If that's indeed the case, I'd like it to be known that I'm a good American. I braved inches of ice and really NASTY weather conditions to vote last night! :) When Dan and I got back to his truck, a pretty good sized branch had broken out of the tree over his truck due to the heaviness of the ice and was dangling inches from his roof.

Dan called and said Route 199 (the main road to Carey where he works) is nothing short of ridiculous, so I won’t be heading up there to eat. Mom and I ate at the Pour House. I ended up spending most of my afternoon practicing organ at the church. Oh yeah, I stopped by the candy shop for a latte and some Jelly Bellys, too. The roads are looking pretty dry this evening, so hopefully school will go on time tomorrow.
