Introducing (Again): The Two-Hour Delay
Happy New Year!
Happy Cold Snowy New Year!
Happy Cold Snowy Beautiful New Year!
I am reposting this post from last year (Feb. 11, 2013), because it has been soooo cold, and tomorrow morning the warning is as follows:
... Wind chill warning remains in effect until 7 am EST Wednesday...
And kids are waiting for the school bus before 7 a.m. in some cases. So do we do another snow day? Or could we start a two-hour-delay trend? Why not?
Today was a snow day.
Now don't get me wrong. I love snow days, especially when there is snow to play in.
And I know that it was icy on the rural roads in the district at 5 a.m. But then it warmed up.
My friends in Pittsburgh (a city of many bridges that freeze) tell me that their schools often get a two-hour delay on days when it is icy in the morning but likely to warm up later.
I'm really not sure why none of our local schools seem to do this. It seems like this would have been the perfect solution in weather like today's.
And that is my bright idea!
