Recently there was a news article listing our town as one of the 15 coldest in the country. So it's probably no surprise I have another post from the heart of the snow belt.
Not much has changed from my last report except that it is almost February now. The kids finally went back to school 3 days later than their break was supposed to be.
Midweek last week, all the districts around called off again, but the city schools did not, prompting outcries from many parents and a suggestion from the superintendent that parents invest in hats and gloves for their kids.
By Friday school was called again however, leaving the approach of the new week to be faced. Temps rose some over the weekend, mainly so it could snow more, which it did, resulting in massive white outs and much accumulation.
I was at work Saturday and took this picture from the window trying to show the lack of visibility.
Now the snow has stopped, but that actually bad news, as lack of cloud cover means temps are steadily dropping to record lows. There was no school yesterday and none today. No one knows for sure about Wednesday. Our governor is already calling for a one year increase on snow days.
As the local news site said"--it's not who will be closed, it's who will be dumb enough to be open."
Today we took the Boy back to school through frigid temps, although not a lot of traffic for a weekday since so much was closed.
At least the sun was shining.
This week end we are supposed to warm up to a balmy 20, or bikini weather as the local DJ said. I'm sure we haven't seen the last of the deep freeze though.
Update: The phone rang a little while ago and the school system came up on the caller ID. You guessed it, no school tomorrow. That's 7 snow days since New Year's Day.
