School Canceled???

Not a flake has fallen. Only weather predicted, and school has been canceled.

I want to be a weather forecaster. I'd get up there and lie my ass off every night. Gonna be beautiful tomorrow. Everyone goes to school.

The kids are wild. NO SCHOOL NO SCHOOL...

Where is the wonder of waking up in the morning to a pile of snow and realizing you don't have to go to school? Look outside right now and there's mud. Dirt.

I swear, if we are not buried under three feet of snow by the morning, I'm going to have a nutty.

In the meantime, I have to get three wild boys into bed. Wish me luck because you know, there is NO SCHOOL NO SCHOOL...

Man do I know that feeling! Imagine growing up in a place that only got snow once a year or so. Our school district was notorious for not canceling school until 7:00am. We would barely sleep after it started snowing. I remember my sister and I practically bouncing off the walls! When we woke up the next morning and inevitably had to go to school, we were exhausted.

Good luck getting the boys to bed!

It seems so strange to someone in Denmark. We get snow, too, but maybe less than you do? I cannot remember school ever being closed because of snow. And you live in an urban area, right?
If school is cancelled, is work cancelled, too? Or whom do they expect to look after the kids?

No snow days in Florida but we did (and they still do) get the occasional hurricane day off of school. Not so much fun, really.

ah, Ulla, it's the ultimate squeeze on working parents. School gets canceled and no, work is not canceled so parents scramble.

I work at home, thus I deal with the kids. Before when I worked at an investment company and my wife worked at Berklee College of Music (still does), I had a more flexible boss so I would stay home.

it's not that much snow. we've all become a little hysterical around here.

It certainly seems like an idea from days long gone.
I work at home, too, I'm a translator, and it's neat to not have to scramble if someone is sick or whatever. The best of two worlds, I think: that of the homemaker and the professional.

Seriously, this snow day thing is getting ridiculous. I don't even have kids, but I certainly remember struggling to school in more snow than we have now. Granted, it was the Midwest, but really.

I thought about you this morning as I was watching The Weather Channel.

Near white-out conditions in DownEast Maine. That did NOT look fun.

How much did you end up getting? We only got a VERY light dusting. My husband even rode the bus into work this morning with no problems.

Are the Kids enjoying the day off?

We've sent out two, picked up one, which leaves me still down one body.
