Did your kids have school today?

 Was school open? Delayed? Closed?

Ours was open, no delay, but the roads were bad! The bus was late and at the bus stop we heard sirens and our neighbor's husband (the bus stop is on their porch) got a call to come as he is a volunteer firefighter. There was an accident just down the road from our school. Many other fender benders around as well. Gah. At least they are there now and supposedly after we have sleet/freezing rain it will change to plain rain and get warmer- so hope that happens before they have to come home today!

We're on a 2 hour delay.  Girls are getting ready now.  The roads were really bad this morning, but everything is melting fast now.

We had freezing rain all night. The ice was bad. We had a 2 hour delay. Now we are having regular rain, but it hadn't helped in time for the ice to melt yet.

School was open. I kept him home anyway. Driving in snow is one thing, driving on ice is another. School is right down the street-like 2 miles and the time he comes home they are predicting would be really bad. So I kept him home. He's safe, that's all I'm interested in. They closed early on Friday, when we got a dusting of snow. I was  surprised they didn't close for ice. Makes no sense!

 I was totally regretting sending my kids today! Hopefully it will be all rain here later and we don't seem to be getting sleet/freezing rain (or any precip) at the moment. It was a bad call by our school this morning, though, IMO! The bus driver was not pleased! The bus was also really empty so I think other kept their kids home, too.

We had a 2 hour delay this morning.  My boys will be leaving for the bus stop shortly.

I'm not sure if it will make you feel any better, but it has been a steady rain here for the past 2.5-3 hours.  Our road is just wet now.

 It does! I'm thinking that warmer air/rain should get here within just a few hours if it's there now! :-)

I figured that info would help.
