Do your kids have a snow day today?

I am a very silly mommy! Schools were closed yesterday because of the deep snow and cold weather, and I checked for school closings last night and didn't see that DD's school was listed as closed for Tuesday. I got up early this a.m. and didn't check again. The snow plows have been through and the roads are cleared, so I shoveled the mound at the end of the drive that the snow plow made and got my kids up and out, only to find their school closed!

It's 2 degrees F but the roads are fine today. Sheesh! If they close the schools every time it's this cold in Iowa, the kids will have to go all summer to get in their days! Oh well - I was kind of hoping for a snow day so we can bundle up and go outside to play in it (but only for a short time since it's so cold).

To those of you in the south, enjoy it! I used to live in Austin, and I loved to call up north to talk about our 40 degree temperatures when it was 10 below where the rest of my family lives!

  • Is that 2 degrees with windchill? Wow that is cold. We have about 1/4 inch of snow. Just a light dusting and the schools are on two hour delay.

  • Not today, but probably will have at least a 2-hr delay tomorrow because we're expecting a small storm to come through later today & on through tomorrow. I'm in PA.

  • We have school today, although we didn't get any snow last night. We will probably have a snow day tomorrow because we are suppose to get 8" of snow tonight. It really depends on when the snow will start. I presonally love snow days, so I am all for it. I'm in MA
