. . .today is a snowy day in the Philly area. . .
that is not something new this winter - we have had a lot of snowy days. The kids' schools have been closed 3 (or 4) times so far.
today i had an unusual situation - the upcoming "storm" hasn't moved in yet. . .Owen's school closed in anticipation of nasty weather. Ryan's school did not.
After John and I talked it over, and I gave Ryan the option of going to school - a part of him wanted to go (or felt guilty that he should go) - which makes me happy. But ultimately, we made a family decision to let him stay home too.
My fear - is that they would get to school, the storm would ravage in around 2 and administrators would panic how they were going to get everyone home quickly and safely. I know it's their job, and they have my children's safety and well-being at the tops of their minds. But they are human and this is weather. . .it's a crap shoot.
And today - we went "all in".
Are you off on a snow day today?
catch you soon -
