|Too cold for Runners|
It's ok though. We had some late sales in the stocking shop last night and were panicking on how we were going to deal with them. Mere moments after making the decision to close the shop for the year....we hear the news that the Half Marathon had been cancelled due to the cold. ( Apparently, -1 temp with -20 windchill is too cold for the lower 48 states.)

Ah well, the sales for the stockings more than make up for the lost hotel. Cheryl immediately re-opened the shop.... possibly causing even more confusion to our customers. I'm sure the invariable tidal wave of sales was stopped dead the moment everyone ( who, up to this point had not been reading the front page) stopped to read the shop closing message.

So, what to do with our new found time....stranded in a warm apartment while the elements wage their wintry war against everyone? Why, bake Pizza and cookies in the kitchen!

Whereas I'm making several days worth of Pizza dough. We are planning on staying home tomorrow and I will be responsible for making my own food....instead of relying on McDonalds or HyVee for instant heart attack fast food.
Hopefully the cold will pass by and things will warm up again. And the slippery roads can just go away forever as far as I'm concerned. No one, not even Subie, likes to drive on slippery roads.
