Snow day

Well, the word finally came about 9:15 tonight that there is no school tomorrow for the kiddos. We're supposed to get an inch of snow overnight and only get up to 34 tomorrow. So, it is highly likely that we can play in the snow in the morning. Yippee. It will be fun, but also be a hassle to get them all bundled up and then unbundled when they're all wet.

Our driveway is going to be a blast for the kids to slide down. Will be a bitch for Army of Dad to drive down. He cant' understand why I'm upset that he is going to work. It is going to be dangerous to get there, but they're doing an inventory this week and he insists he has to be there. I think the damn thing could wait so everyone could be safe, but this is corporate America we're talking about.

My eldest was supposed to sing at a school function Thursday night. I hope they reschedule. I'm going to work some and then crash. Didn't get to bed last night till 1:30 and I'm zonked out.

Funny, looking at the closings list and laughing at some of these names. I find it ironic that Frost ISD will close on a snow day. :)

    Gotta tell ya, I miss the days of closing school for an inch of snow.

    Grew up in Oklahoma, but moved to the Chicago suburbs 20 years ago. It's zero right now, with 3 inches expected this afternoon. Hasn't gotten above 15 in days. And, I just bundle my kids up, and send them out in it. Sigh.

    A snow day up here occurs only when there's feet of snow, not inches.

    Yea, i've always laughed, very heartily, about the HUGE deal you guys make about a puny inch. In fact...

    I was driving around the other day, in the popsicle that is bismarck, at least 3 inches of snow on the ground and packed 1 inch thick snow/ice on the street. But no matter how hard I tried I could not get it to fish tail around the corner. I even tried spinning cookies in an empty lot, it can't be done in a FWD. I'm pissed. In fact I barely even slide, I did once, I was going 45, slammed on the brakes, then slid about 15 feet. Yipee.

    You guys get all the fun, sometimes I wish I could go down there during the "Emergency" and just whip through traffic like knight rider with all my winter driving experience. Good times had by all.

    I can't imagine having feet of snow. I don't think I've ever experienced that other than a trip to Colorado. I guess you get used to it, we're just not down here. My kids are just excited when something outside on the ground is white.

    And Cashin, darn you ... we know we're wimps, but you don't have to laugh at us!!! :)
