Weather Related Closings

So, here I sit in my comfortable sun room chair, at 9:44 am, tapping away on my laptop, instead of preparing for second block. Why, you might ask? Because we have been granted our fourth snow day of the school year, due to forecasts of day long snow, heavy winds, and ridiculously low temperatures. The highs for the next two days are at or near 0 (yes, that's right: HIGHS). As we hitch and start our way toward the end of the semester, these snow days become somewhat of a hindrance to smooth operations, but I'll take them. The only problem is, with so much of winter yet to go, one more day off puts us at the limit. After that, we have to make up the missed time somehow. That usually means extending the school year. And those days are hard ones to get through for everybody.

Happy New Year Tony Reda, Mary Meghan and Rippkin! We too are getting our first snow day of the year. They called it at 7:00 p.m. - never in the fifteen years of my employ at CPS has that ever happened. i am predicting another one on Friday due to the -25 degree weather we are supposed to get and you know just how much I love me some snow days - particularly those that are followed by a two day weekend. Cooking and writing wedding thank you cards (I am woefully late on this task but....better late than never). Miss You - Jami

Snowing here, darn cold, and not a chance for an official 'snow day'. Perhaps Minnesotans are a little *too* efficient!

We can all still daydream about summertime in the mountains, though...

Miss you Tony & Megs & Rippy too...
