As previously reported,
school was called off last Thursday and Friday.
Not in a civilized manner,
the evening before,
but commencing with phone calls at 5 am.
Add getting up an hour early daily over the weekend
to take Emily to work,
and I was looking forward to catching up this morning,
before hitting the world with a spring, so to speak.
The phone rang again this morning at 5 am;
school was on a two hour delay.
I reported same to the bus catchers.
I went back to sleep.
One of the road guys asked me later why the buses were
stationed in parking lots, running, at 5:30,
when they were out clearing the roads.
"Obviously to get the buses warm enough for the precious children who don't wear enough clothing,"
On a lighter note, the world was two colors today, so I took some pictures.
My favorite: ballerinas en pointe, spinning, spinning.
