We have been hearing all across Minnesota that a BLIZZARD was coming our way, starting this morning and not ending until tomorrow some time. Visibiltiy was diminished worse then in this picture, as I waited for the bus, with the kids today. I said, why are they even having school? I said, I should keep you kids home today....I should have followed my gut! It is getting really terrible out and the wind is just starting to pick up....JOY!
School is letting out 4 hours early, so that is around 11:00 ish, but I feel that even closing at 11:00 ish, is going to give them a "run for their money". Some have already let out as early as 9:00 am. Some had a two hour late start, which was smart! It let them see what the weather was going to do and then they could just cancel it, as District 241 should have done!
Last school year during a blizzard (when school should have been canceled from the get-go), I waited for over 2 1/2 hours for my kids to get home on the bus, in a blizzard and no one and I mean NO ONE should have been out driving in it. I commend the bus drivers for having to drive in such horrible conditions. So today, I am very frustrated and this leaves me thinking, when in the whole area, there is NO DRIVING ADVISED and WEATHER ADISORIES all across the board, why would District 241 have school today? What were they thinkin?
So, now at about noon-ish, I will get to wait for probably about 2 hours (give or take) worrying, wondering and waiting if my kids will make it home safe. I should have followed my gut and kept them home, where I knew they would be safe. Stay warm and have a good day. ~Tonya
