We let the kids try them out last night after dinner.
Why are they all home from school today you ask??? Well, let me tell you....
Yesterday we had snow in the forecast [insert Halloween scream]... around 10am huge flakes fell from the sky for about 5 minutes. My cell phone goes off with a text message from Stafford County: All Stafford County schools will be letting out 2 hours early due to the weather.
So all the kids were home by early afternoon. Granted, we did get a few more 5 minute episodes of giant snowflakes, and one brief moment of freezing rain throughout the day.
5am, my cell phone goes off again with this: All Stafford County schools are canelled today.
And this is what we woke up to...
Oh the insanity! The horror! I don't know how the kids would have made it out to the bus stop in all that snow. I mean, the bus probably wouldn't have even made it out!!! Start up those snow blowers, the sidewalks need to be cleared!!!
Sorry, I just don't understand this.
