Between the time change and the meteorological schizophrenia, I don’t know if I’m coming or going. Yesterday it was 60 degrees and everything was warm and sunny and melty. This morning, taking the Tall Kid to school in the first couple of the five to six inches we’re expected to get today:
Wherefore art thou, Spring
Yeah, that’s our weather. 70s followed by snow. Up, down, up, down. Snow yesterday. Who knows what today will be like? Doesn’t seem to be discouraging all the buds that are growing, though.
No snow here, but woke up to rain this a.m., a phenomenon that happens MAYBE once a year (we get rain, but mostly in the form of random thundershowers in the late summer). So it was seriously still night-time when we had to drag our collective butts out of bed. Blech.
And I’m seriously considering dragging this butt back to bed once kid is gone. :thumb:
Weather must be wonky everywhere… we’ve been having the low 30s to mid-80s back to back for three weeks now… um, maybe that’s why the family keeps getting sick :crazy:
Forget it. I couldn’t drive in that. Can’t you put the kids on a :sled: and send them off to school?
I would be a very bad mother…
I’d put them on a :sled: , but the Tall Kid’s backpack is so heavy they’d tip it over.
They gambled and we won, because the storm fell within the school day. It wasn’t too bad bringing them in and it had mostly wound down in time to make a few passes before they got out. No snow day, since we’re already pushing hard toward the end of June (which messes with my ATVing). The city an hour south of us gambled and had four school buses in accidents, though. (Thankfully minor.)
I think at this point we’ve already extended the school year enough so, if they can’t make do with a delay like today’s, they’ll have school. Town road kids and 4×4 kids will make it and they’ll just have a high absentee rate.
Other schools are looking at extended hours, Saturday classes or lost vacations.
School ends here in MAY.
Did you see we had TEN inches of SNOW? And the kids are still getting out before Memorial Day. Course. Those 10 inches happened in one swoop so we only missed 2 days of school.
