As I'm running this morning before school, in the unusually warm 55˚ weather with shorts and trying to cut through the 40mph wind gusts I get a call for a 2-hour delay. I couldn't think of a reason why, but then I realized that the flooding is as bad as expected (worse even). This became even more apparent when I couldn't get onto my normal road and had to take the long highway way to school. Adding this loss to the lack of a predicted 2-hour delay last time, and I'm disappointed. It has not been a normal winter so far, with all of the delays and closings related to flooding and not snow.

For the first day of the new semester at the high school, you will likely have a treat of no enrichment and 2 hours of extra sleep. It's hard to predict exactly how much snow/sleet/freezing rain we'll have, but I'm pretty sure we'll have enough for a delay, but not so much that the roads will be completely untravelable (is that a word?). We are on the outer edge of the advisory zone, however the event may last into the afternoon....that means...well, I don't know - we COULD get no delay or we COULD get a day off, but I'm confident that a delay is the most likely scenario for Monday.

It’s been over two months since we’ve had an event, probably due to a warmer than normal winter, and the events that would have affected school happened over the holiday. Anyway…NO DELAY TOMORROW: The roads may be a little slushy, but not enough to demand a delay. Be wary in your transportations in the morrow.
