Snow Day

Yesterday was 60 degrees.

It was a beautiful day…but we knew IT was coming. We were expecting a snow day here in Atlanta, and were really excited about the possibility.

If you could be home, the snow was great. However, many schools did not anticipate how fast this system was moving in. We southerners do not have the infrastructure to deal with icy roads. It got bad quickly. As I type, people are still trying to get home. Many on the roads over 9 hours, just trying to make it home. Thousands of kids never made it out of school today. They are overnighting.

25/365…yes, I’m cheating.

We’ve had a good day filled with fun, snow, and warm food. My husband got on the road just in time to beat the gridlock. He had some struggles and saw accidents…but he made it home before the worst. It’s amazing that two inches of snow could wreak such havoc. It seems silly, but it does. Everything will ice over soon, if not already. Pray for those who are stranded on roads…and for the kids spending the night in schools without the comforts of parents. The school officials blew it. At least our county closed schools last night. We are thankful to be homeschoolers tonight.

  1. Overnighting at school? This might be an excellent time for the teachers to renegotiated their contracts. They deserve a huge pay increase!

  5. Oh my!! I have been watching it on the news. So happy to hear you all are okay. We have had a strange winter with only 2 snowfalls with it all melting. Then last night we were hit with about 6 inches & it’s still coming down. They say 10-15 inches by the time it stops tomorrow. So I guess I will be getting re-acquainted with my shovel today. :)

    I hope some of the kids who overnight-ed at their schools think of it as giant sleepover with their friends. What an inconvenience for everyone, though. …and here my kids are bemoaning the fact that we never ever get snow!
