Clan Evil is headed to the Big Apple this weekend to watch Our Very Own Tonks sing with her school choir at Carnegie Hall. This is such an exciting opportunity for her, and she left today with the other 75 members. The remaining Evil Family members take off tomorrow on a 1:00 p.m. flight, so we are closing up the castle for a few days.
It's time to leave the horrible weather we've been having here. It got pretty warm over last weekend, with highs in the 40s, teasing us with the prospect that winter might actually be over for the year. HA! Because then we had two solid days of hazy grayness, followed by a freezing of all the slush generated by the warmer days, capped by snow. And bitter cold. Again.
It's pretty disheartening to drive the kids to school when the temperature is -4, with a predicted high of 10. I've literally gotten the inside of my nostrils frozen, which is a painful as it sounds.
Even if NYC isn't by any stretch of the imagination tropical, at least is it different. We fly back on Monday, and then back out on Tuesday to Palm Springs. Which I am really looking forward to, because I am TIRED of being COLD.
