Finally a snow day

Oh you got to be kidding me... we got our snow day. It is one of those becarful for what you ask for things for me. If you have been reading my blog lately you know how much I have been waiting and whining for a snow day with my boys. And how disappointed we (I) have been each time the weather liar has let me down. I knew there was a small chance of snow in the forecast for last night but they were also calling for ice. The temperatures have been just a little to warm for both. I figured nothing would happen.

My children all ready had the day off of school today for a teacher inservice. The school district and surrounding ones did not have the day off but Friday instead when mine will be at school. I had a full day planned for the kids spanning two states with surprises, errands, and appointments. There dad did not get home till 8:30 this morning so I was also trying to keep them out of the house so he could sleep.

But as he was leaving for work last night it started snowing. Within an hour two of the local school districts had called for a two hour delay. Ugh this is going to make things tougher but still doable. I only snowed a little and had stopped before I went to sleep.

I woke up and there was not much accumulation.

Look at the top and the ledges it was tiny and it was raining, sort of. I checked the news and the school were still on a two hour delay so on with my many plans as normal. A few hours went by and we were going to get ready to leave and all the sudden the school started closing. Oh No! The roads had still not been touched and now were icy. There goes our plans. There is no leaving the house everything is closed and canceled. My long to do list of out of the home items will have to be pushed off. No special surprises for the boys. We are staying home.

Now this is what I had asked for, a snow day. But why did it come when there was so much to do? When I now have to keep the kids quiet in the house (impossible).
