Winter Storm Advisory - Schools Cancelled

It seems to have become the mantra this winter - snow storm upon snow storm, a polar vortex creating temperatures so cold that school is cancelled, ice storms, and freezing rain causing school delays that become cancellations. So far this winter, we have experienced it all with delays and cancellations becoming the norm. So what do you do on a day when there is no school because of the ice storm, and it also happens to be a day the tea room is prepared to serve afternoon tea, except 90% of the reservations have cancelled that morning because of the hazards caused by the icy conditions? Well, if you live next door to a tea room, and you have middle school friends that are within walking distance, and the temperatures have started to melt the ice, you invite your friends for Afternoon Tea courtesy of your aunt. That's just what happened this week. Angelica and a few middle school friends enjoyed sipping tea, sampling savories, giggling and chatting, with conversation ranging from classes and teachers to discussing names for horses, coupled with even more laughter. What better way to enjoy one more day off from school.

Sorry for the cancellations, but what a fun opportunity for Angelica to entertain her friends at tea. You are a very special aunt.

Love this! What a special aunt you are. I would have loved doing this at that age. This makes me smile.

Now why didn't *I* ever get to enjoy a snow day like that? Sigh ... :)
