At least that's what I'd call it.  We lost another two days of school at the beginning of the week to snow.  In that we don't seem to be able to handle a foot of snow as far as plowing and keeping the power on, it wasn't an over-reaction, but it would be nice if they'd figure out that we do get snow now and be prepared for it.  We shouldn't need to have the governor declare a state of emergency and get FEMA involved any time we get more snow than will melt in 24 hours of over freezing temps.

So at least two of the local school systems have cut their two-day February break down to just the federal holiday.  Which makes sense given that we've already gone through eight weather days between Sandy, Nemo/Charlotte, and whatever the last snow storm was.  It will be interesting to see how much later my younger daughter's school system has to go to get in their federally allotted minimum class time for the year.
