Dreaming of a White Thursday
I’m glad they called tonight, rather than doing the whole wait and see thing tomorrow. And I’m thinking tomorrow will be a snow day—as well as Friday. Cincinnati doesn’t do snow well. The predicted 3-6” will cause quite a tizzy.
What really amazes me is technology. Remember when we were kids and actually had to tune into a radio to find out if we had school? Nowadays there are tickers running at the bottom of every major local TV station and the school actually has an automated calling system to get the word out to students. Very high tech, which makes me feel slightly old—mostly because the only radios we have in use are in the cars!
I’m hoping for another couple of snow days… It almost feels like vacation around here. And who doesn't like vacation--even if it's snow covered?
8AM update: It's snowing! Schools are closed. Kids are still snuggled up in bed, dreaming of the homework they won't be doing tonight.
