Our scheduled guest speaker is to be a representative of the Virginia Stonewall Caucus, of the Democratic Party. He will be there to hear our concerns, so that he can be a better advocate for us. There was much discussion about this at our last meeting, and some who think it's best for us to eschew politics altogether, came down against it! I'm still a new and very shy member, and even though I was in favor of this guest speaker addressing us, I remained silent, leaving the debate to more senior members. It was decided that the subject would be discussed at the next board members meeting. I didn't attend, but apparently they decided to invite the guy after all, and he will be speaking to us Friday night. Good decision as far as I'm concerned. Congrats to those present, who voted yes!
But now, will I be there to hear him? Well, its up in the air right now. We are experiencing one of the more foul weathered winters, in a long time here in central Virginia. I live in the Virgina Piedmont. Our weather in winter, is significantly different from that on the coastal plain. This weekend they are calling for another winter storm. Richmond, where my meeting takes place should be fine, with rain only, but out here in the Piedmont the forecast is for snow and mixed frozen precipitation! That my dears, around here means ice! If the driving conditions are icy, I will stay home. Having already wrecked one vehicle driving on black ice, I have no intention of a repeat performance. I have vowed to simply not drive, when there are icy conditions. So I may be there with my sisters, and then maybe I won't. It all depends.
