Another day

School is cancelled again today because we got freezing rain and the busses wont run. Last year, we didnt miss a day of school, this year we've now missed 3 days. The first was for freezing rain, the second for -50 below temps, and now today for freezing rain again. This is craziness! I know you are probably sick of hearing the about the weather and maybe you've been thinking about leaving a comment to tell me that the title of my blog would be more appropriate if it were Such is Weather! But weather really is what rules our world up here. Everything is dependent on the weather! The thing I would like to know is...when are we going to make up these weather days? We only keep one calamity day in our schedule and we've already used it. I've heard rumors that the days will be made up on Saturdays. YUCK!28*F

Say it isn't so... our Saturdays are our own, not the LKSD's. :-) 2 years ago I don't recall the district having make-up days... but then again my 2 oldest are both still at M.E.

Just wanted to say hello and thanks for putting me on your blogroll :)

So much for global warming......

How do they manage to keep the power on? Stay dry and warm and keep writing.
