Another Delay

Yep, school's delayed again. It's about 29 degrees, but the wind has been howling since last night. A storm is moving in. Our local news station says we're only supposed to get 0-3", but the NOAA says between 5-10" when it's finished with us. Add that wind in there and even with just 0-3" there'll be nasty drifts. It's just started snowing in the last couple of hours. I imagine they'll close school before too long. Dh is working from home the next couple of days. Denver is supposed to get the majority of this storm. We shall see. I've learned that the weather people can do their best, but it seems they never quite get it right.

Hang in there, Lorri! How much are you guys supposed to get???

Closed now! It's barely snowing. I think the district is being proactive. Besides, *all* the *other* districts closed! (did ya catch that mom-sarcism?!? lol) Works for me. One of my families brought some movies with them and we just got the new Ice Age movie from netflix yesterday. :) We've got tons of hot chocolate so we're set!

Enjoy YOUR day! :)

We barely got any snow! The roads had some ice in spots and the wind is horrible. The forecast says up to 35mph gusts tonight and another 2-4 inches of snow. If we get it, and I doubt we will, we'll have some nasty drifts. The two main roads to our "town" have nothing around them. No trees or buildings, so they usually drift pretty bad. I'm fully expecting at least a delay tomorrow, if not another closure. It is crazy, though. Where I grew up (MI) we'd have to get over a foot of snow for them to even delay school. It seems they delay and close here at the drop of a hat. Whatever. What can ya do? I'll have probably 4 kids tomorrow at least, if not all 9 (I have a 13yo sibling that comes if school is closed all day, but she doesn't count in my ratio). We shall see. :)
