Life Lessons of a Military Wife (overseas in Europe!)

My goal here is to make your life easier, especially those who are in the unique situation of being a military spouse. Yes...I've been around...but in a good way...and hopefully can share those tips, tricks and shortcuts with you too. I've been on this military bus for over 40 years now. My goals in life are to have a well-run home, few money worries, well adjusted children, money socked away and whatever happiness I can scoop out of life.

After life as an Army brat, being in the Army myself and marrying a soldier, I can honestly say I have a bucket full of life lessons I can share to help you make your everyday life easier and enlightening. Don't waste your time making unnecessary mistakes and benefit from others who have come before you on your journey through life.

What is this road conditions thing?

Did you ever wonder how the overseas military posts determine the road conditions here in Europe?  Winter is not over yet....be sure to check it out!




Military communites over here follow the steps in this video, not just Stuttgart.


 

And why do you care what the road conditions are?  Well, if you've got kids, the school buses will roll according to the road conditions.  You could have a two hour delay or possibly canceled school.  It's been amazing how many school days we've already had canceled this year!  This site lists all the military communities in Europe and what the current weather and road conditions are.  There is also a phone number listed to get a recorded message as such and AFN Radio also reports the road conditions and school closures.  Or you'll need to know if the PX or commissary is open or even if your work is shut down or not (although your office should also have a system to notify everyone of the plan).  Sometimes it even gets bad enough for a base to completely shut down, where people won't be allowed to go on or off.  I've only seen that happen once though.Bottom line...winter is not over yet!
