The snowstorm and blizzard now ranks as the third worst in Chicago history. (A snowstorm and a blizzard are two different things by the way.) The girls have another day off school. I am thrilled.
It's bitter cold now (-20 windchill). Our streets are drivable, but only one car at a time. There's ice on the streets. Our bus stop is buried under a five foot snow drift. Later today we're going to go over and try to dig out a space so we're not standing in the street while we wait for the school bus.
All-in-all I'd rather just stay home today. A surprising number of parents complained that the school district called another snow day, but not me. I'll take better-safe-than-sorry any day.
