School closing

I have one big stupid question? What idiot decides if they kids have school or not? Okay I know the answer but why does ours have to be a complete dumbass...



Okay so far we have had about 10 inches of snow (maybe more I quit counting) with ice somewhere in the middle with a few days of melting only to make more smooth, slick ice. Then all the neighboring schools that we follow (notice follow not lead cause we would hate to think for ourselves) are closed or delayed but we still at 2 am can't decide if we are going to close or not. Now today I drove through 4 different towns, burgs, cities and only one had the their main street completely clear and what do you say, they are on a 2 hour delay but our city that is still covered can't decide...hmmmm? should we close or let's put kids on buses that have to crawl at 5 mph so they don't slide off the road and kill anyone. If I get a call that there is a bus accident I will and I'm letting you know now cause I won't be back. I will have a full blown conniption fit and probably be arrested. So what if we have to go a few days.. maybe the teachers could give up an in service day..hmmm there's a thought. I just don't get it..it's a no brainer... sorry just had to vent. I know 10 inches isn't much to some but it is for us. Anywho... move on..thanks for listening.

Well, at least they finally made the right decision! The girls are lovin' it. How about your kids?

I am so glad I am past all that. We never knew until after 6am the morning of, if the buses were going to run or not.

Luckily the bus driver's son was best buddies with our son, so we always got him to call their house.
