Our favorite fill-in host Keith reports the snow is coming down, covering and sticking to the ground up in Alpharetta. But so far we’ve only got a few flakes floating around in the sky here in Gwinnett.
The big question among moms I’ve talked with last night and today is: Do you want the kids to have a snow day tomorrow?
Several teacher friends on Facebook are all for a snow day tomorrow, but I feel like the kids just got back from a long break. They need to get back in a routine and get some things accomplished.
And we already have to make up two days from the flood in fall. Gwinnett loses two three-day weekends (Feb. 12 and March 15) to make up those flood days.
Obviously if it’s not safe they shouldn’t go, but honestly, I’m not really rooting for a snow day tomorrow.
How do you feel: Ready for a good snow day from school and work (do you get off work?)? Too close to such a long winter break? Would you rather have some days off in the Spring?
