The 1/2 day that shouldn't have been....

Today was a 1/2 day of school with a teacher institute scheduled for this afternoon. We were positive it was going to be a snow day when we all got up, but we were sorely mistaken. Turns out that EVERY school in the surrounding areas was closed, except our town.

Kolin trudged outside and got the Expedition ready to venture out. I made sure the girls were ready, had their snack and were all bundled up. We had gotten 6-7 inches and it was still snowing when Kolin and the girls left this morning.

It turns out that 2 buses went into ditches this morning. It's unknown at this point if children were on the bus at the time or not. 100+ kids were called in absent from just the k-1st grade school. Jadyn had 6 kids missing in her class and Taryn said 4 were absent in her class.

Pure craziness and I'm sure the superintendents office was swamped with phone calls from irate parents. Now it's time to brace for artic winds and really nasty windchills that should be starting tonight and will last until sometime Friday.
