Frozen Friday

What was supposed to be an exciting day turned into one of sheer boredom.

Thank you very much, Mother Nature. NOT.

The roads iced over this morning across most of Kansas. That led to many high school basketball games getting postponed, including Smith Center at Norton.

I learned of the postponement just after noon. I made a very quick run to the post office to make sure two time sensitive Christmas cards got out before collection at 12:15, and then I found out a few minutes later there would be no basketball in Norton.

The Smith Center-Norton game is now Jan. 31. Norton’s next game isn’t until Jan. 3 when the Bluejays host Cambridge, Neb. I was planning on not going to that one, but plans may change, especially if I can’t get tickets to the LSU-Missouri game in Columbia Jan. 4.

I did next to nothing Friday. It’s a few minutes after midnight Saturday. I’m going to sleep as late as I can. I need it.

The only good thing about games getting called off today is it means less work. Maybe I can get to Kansas City for a few days before Christmas.
