Winter Wonderland

January 29, 2010

We’re in the midst of our first “real” snow of the season. I’m enjoying the view out our kitchen window, since we are snug and warm inside.

We were incredulous that school was not cancelled this morning and D’Arcy ended up driving the boys to school as we were both worried about them taking the bus. They catch it at 7:15 am on the corner. It’s still dark at that time on a good day, and visibility was not great this morning. Not to mention that the first time we saw a plow was at 8:34!!

All three boys did get to school safely, only to have it cancelled mid-morning. I can’t imagine what a nightmare that must have been for the staff, since they have nearly 600 children to find a safe place for before they can allow them to get sent home. Lucky for us, Auntie Kay was working in the library, so she brought Evan & Alex home with her.

The high-school kids were already in the middle of writing their exam when school was cancelled, so D’Arcy’s school will be dismissed at 1:00.

When I looked out our window at 5:00 this morning, I was sure that school would be cancelled. Someone at the school board made a bad call today and I hope that all students, teachers & staff manage to make it home safely.

The wind is supposed to pick up later and it’s still snowing heavily.  The kids have asked to go out and build a snowman this afternoon, so we’ll see how long we last outside.  The driveway needs to be shoveled again for the third time anyway…
