Late last February, our state saw a record-breaking amount of snowfall, in a very short amount of time. Everything came to standstill. It was crazy.
We called it The Blizzard of Oz.
Maybe this is our new February... thing.
Our school system announced at 6:00 last night that school would be canceled today.
That never happens.
The snow hadn't even started. It wasn't supposed to start until the overnight hours, piling up throughout today.
Turns out, they made the right call.
Everything is closing. On Facebook, I'm watching as local businesses I follow are closing due to weather.
It's a marshmallow world...
While I wish my play rehearsal would go on as planned tonight - we open a week from tomorrow! - it will probably be canceled. That's my only complaint. Mr. B had already planned a vacation day for today, for reasons completely unrelated to weather, so my little family is all safe and accounted for at home.
And the truth? I love snow days.
