It snowed in central Arkansas yesterday. This doesn't happen often, so people get a little excited. Especially the kids because they know the schools will close--even if there isn't much on the ground.
This is what we woke to this morning:and guess what?
School was canceled. Not. Even. Kidding.
Central Arkansas just doesn't see that much snow, so the bus drivers aren't really accustomed to driving over icy bridges or up steep, snow and ice covered hills. So even though it's in the kids' best interest to be better safe than sorry, it also seems like overkill.
Besides, my kids are old enough now that they can stay at home without me...so I still have to go to work. And how unfair is that?
Do you live in an area that shuts down at the mere mention of wintery weather or do you walk to school, up hill, in two feet of snow EVERY DAY NO MATTER WHAT?
