The school district announced the second snow day last night at 8:39.  So much for my hibernation.  For those of you who were concerned, no, we didn't catch the brunt of the storm.  That was centered up a little more north around Denver.  We got maybe 6 to 8 inches in the yard, but with the strong winds blowing through parts of the yard has drifts of about a foot deep while other areas are bare dirt.  The roads through the neighborhoods are bad though with packed snow and ice.  I'm not looking forward to driving to work tomorrow morning, brrrrrrrrrrr!

So anyhow, back to the snow days... did you know that not only was today the first day of winter, it was also the last day of the semester?  I didn't, but I do now.  The kids don't need a snow day to stay home tomorrow.  Tomorrow is the first day of their winter break.  Impossible! First they had 2 snow days in a row and now they will be home for another 18 days.  Thats 20 days of non-stop fussing and fighting, and its not even summer! 

Happy, happy, joy, joy!  Nothing like quality family time with the Oompas!

Oh Shoot.  I'm actually shocked that they cancelled school for that amount of snow.  I remember going to school after having more than that fall.  I'm sure it was just to spite you!

What's wrong with these people? Don't they know you're hibernating, or at least trying to? When I was young, many moons ago, we used to walk to school with snow up to our armpits. Kids these days don't know they're born! Jeannette xx

ha ha ha.
Good luck with that!
My freshman year in high school (Dec 98'-Jan'99) we had 4 weeks off of school, not counting the TWO weeks for Christmas Vacation--Because of an ice storm, and then a 12" blizzard following :]  I was in heaven!  My parents were in hell, I'm sure! LOL!
Merry Christmas Dorn to you & your family!

I couldn't agree with you more, Dorn. I have two teenaged daughters to contend with now from today till freaking January 8!! Usually, they go back right after the first of the year....ACK!

Good luck with your oompas, and have a great holiday!!

Looking at all the snow, down here in 81 degree temps, I really felt for you. I knew the kids would love it though. I have a cure, put a snow shovel in their hands! Actually Jody I miss snow....Sandi
