(Half)Snow Day

What is up with this?

The school decided to stay open. Until all the kids got there and had an hour of class. Then they decide to close, and request 300+ parents to drive and pick up their kids.

And that was just one school. Every school in the city did this.

Is it just me, or wouldn't it have been safer to cancel school in the first place rather than put every parent on the road at the same time, when poor driving conditions are the reason they are putting hundreds of parents on the road?

It's March. It's not like we're anticipating three more months' worth of snow days.

What I Made:

Snow Ice-cream:

Big bowl of snow (large mixing bowl)
Sugar (1/2-1 cup)
Vanilla (some)
Milk (until it's the consistancy you want)
Rum (when your husband comes home and decides it could use a "kick")

It's not the tastiest thing in the world, but kids LOVE it.
