they so often cry wolf



They've been talking about it all week, and we thought for sure they were wrong, as they often are, but it really is.

Of course it takes over the morning news, because we maybe get one snowfall a year, and it's the kind that's gone by lunch.

And there's a big scroll of cancelled church services at the bottom of the screen. The closings at the tiniest bit of snow dust always makes me laugh. I grew up in Indiana. You'd have to be literally trapped in your house before our superintendent would ever close the schools.

D's kind of pissed off because he has to take his mom and her SO to the airport this morning. He left a few minutes ago and really, really didn't want to go. He thinks it'd be cheaper for them to leave their car in long-term parking than to treat us to dinner in return. I told him even so, if he doesn't take them, he will never, ever hear the end of it, so think of the cost-benefit there. He told me I didn't have to go, and God bless him for that.

They're going to Mexico, and he tried talking them out of it, not just because he didn't want to drive them to the airport, but because, yeah, this is like so not a good time to go to Mexico.

Current Mood: cold cold
Current Music: a danger to yourself--the damned

Isn't there a civil war in Mexico right now? Kidnappings, beheadings, all that sort?

Pretty much. There's all sorts of "DO NOT GO. NO SERIOUSLY, DON'T." travel warnings out there, but, well, you can't tell parents anything, can you?
