Day 2 is much like Day 1, Day 1 being yesterday, the day of ice.
Except Day 2 doesn’t involve ice falling from the sky. Now, ice is on the ground. Still keeping Alex from going to school.
Alex, who is at the moment gleefully jumping up and down in unison with the contestants on “The Price is Right.” Screaming as if he was just called up onto the stage.
We took down the Christmas tree yesterday. It didn’t help. Cross superstition off the list of causes for this year’s luck.
In other news, my mother has been diagnosed with hypo delirium. She may recover. Good news, though: her lungs are better. So the pneumonia is gone.
Yet, I am stuck at home. Unable to visit the hospital. Unable to escape the screams, joyful as they are.
