Oh man HP! That stinks! LOL Actually, our super came to our union president and said, if we continue to have these late starts, either we need to give up our preps and teach, or we could come in early.....we said we'd give up our recess time....she was OK with that. Phew!
We had yesterday off...although, I think we could have gone, at least a late arrival. It was cold, but the sun shone the whole day, no wind....I think they expected worse conditions. I hate when they close 24 hours early...cause you never know. Oh well....I did enjoy my 'Easter Vacation' day. Spent time with the horses, ran a few errands with DH, watched a movie....it was good. :)
Late arrival this morning. They do this to let things warm up a bit. It's currently -8* with a wind chill of -20. To be full sun again today. :)
As far as blanketing...I try to not blanket unless it hits the single digits or negatives. Blankets come off tomorrow. LIke I said, most people around here don't blanket....I probably don't need to...but makes me feel a bit better.
My horses also prefer to be out. I opened the stall doors to clean and they both waltz right out, so I threw their hay out into the field. Let them stretch their legs and get some sunshine. Of course they can always come and go as they please during the day.
Here is a picture of a weather anomaly.(sp) They are called snow rolls, and the atmosphere has to be just perfect temp, winds, humidity wise. Also there must be the correct snow consistency....hard below soft...something like that. Anyway, it's been all over the news. Never saw it before! Pretty cool!
TJ....DO NOT GIVE UP THE FIGHT!
There is always a solution floating out there somewhere! You love the time with the horse too much to give it up. Keep searching.
Roaddy.....well.....did you get snow?
Eole, good thing you cancelled! Wow! Sometimes it's just not worth it!
