Frightful Weather

We've got a dome of polar cold air settling around here for the next few days; lows will be in the single digits and we won't see above freezing temperatures again until probably Sunday. That seems about on par with what the rest of the country is going through. It's cold, even as far south as Florida. But then it's Winter so what do you expect?

So it's cold. Record breaking cold? Not really. Sure, it's been awhile since we've had something like this - I recall reading something the other day in the paper that the last time it was this cold, Clinton was President. We've been through this before. We'll get through it. We'll go through it again.

Surprisingly, some school districts are closing down. No, not because of any precipitation - there hasn't been any - but because some students may not have the proper clothing to withstand walking to school or waiting outside for the bus. I just deleted a longish rant about the cowardice of the school districts but you know what? Never mind. This is just he kind of leadership you can expect from our government officials. When the going gets tough, they'll fold like a cheap pup tent.

As of right now, the girls' schools are still open so it's up and at 'em as usual.
