Jackson Will Never Go To School Again

That's right, they cancelled school AGAIN today - the temp is up but we got snow. I found out from a friend of mine at work that grew up here that when the tempeture gets to a certain point they do cancel school. She said the kids in the outlying areas are out at the busstops as early as 6 am and it's too cold. Our computer is heading off for another adventure in Clarksburg today, so I'll be back to Hamster Modem for a few days. I asked David to drop it off today so that we can pick it up Saturday and I can go to the mall that way. At least the weather has warmed up a bit, I had Pearl out this morning and she was romping all over the place. Vincent was pretending to want to go out but we all know he's a big Fairy Cat and won't be going out until spring. I have no idea how he was stray given his high standards to food, weather, and where he'll sleep.

When we had the ice a few days ago, the kids missed 4 days of school straight.

School has changed so much since I was a student.  School never shut down.  One time, my brother and I actually got frost bite from walking to school in Montana.  And girls were never allowed to wear pants to school.  If it was really cold we could wear what they called "leggings" under our dresses but once we arrived at school, we would have to take them off.  I think they changed all the rules as soon as I graduated!  And really,  it wasn't that long ago--well, it doesn't seem like it.  Lol
