The vagaries of weather

This morning, I face the challenge of convincing a 7-year-old bowler that it's not reasonable to show up for league bowling this morning. The current traffic report:

IN LEXINGTON:

NEW CIRCLE ROAD AT HARRODSBURG ROAD - BLOCKED DUE TO NUMEROUS VEHICLES OFF THE ROADWAY.

PEOPLE SHOULD NOT ATTEMPT TO TRAVEL THIS MORNNG. ROAD CONDITIONS ARE SO HAZARDOUS, THAT SALT TRUCKS ARE SLIDING OFF OF THE ROADWAY!

ROAD CONDITION REPORT:

LEXINGTON - SNOW PLOWS HAVE BEEN OUT SINCE THE EARLY HOURS OF THE MORNING, BUT THE SNOWFALL HAS BEEN HEAVY AND ROADWAYS CONTINUE TO BE SNOW-COVERED IN FAYETTE COUNTY.

THIS IS THE SAME PROBLEM THROUGHOUT THE STATE. THE STATE POLICE REPORT THAT ALL COUNTIES ARE SNOW-COVERED.

ROAD CONDITONS ARE SLICK AND HAZARDOUS. PEOPLE SHOULD NOT TRAVEL TODAY, EXCEPT FOR EMERGENCY SITUATIONS.



I figure that bowling in the league this morning is unreasonable. Bowling in the tournament this afternoon may be possible, if it's not cancelled.

And by the time *I* wanted to leave the house? Tomorrow, after noon? If we can dig our way out the driveway, it looks like the road will be clear by tomorrow. Or deadly slick. We'll see.

Meanwhile, we make French Toast.
