Living on the Eastern Shore is like another planet. When I first moved here I lived with a teacher for one of the elementary schools. Almost weekly she got a 5 am call saying there was a two hour fog delay. What?! WTF is a fog delay?! Apparently fog is enough to close down the school transportation around these parts!
This leads me to yesterday. The news reports a winter storm warning. So what does this mean around here? It means we close school two hours early. So instead of the last buses coming through the neighborhoods at 4:30 pm, they came through at 2:30 pm. Can you guess what the weather was doing at 4:30 pm yesterday??? If you answered nothing then you are correct! There was no snow or even much rain until the over night hours...schools cancelled last night for today...before the storm even came through!
Thank goodness for my daycare that never closes...even in blizzards! Because there was no chance I could stay home today because there was no damn snow...and barely any ice outside of our house! I got to work and everything was practically melted because of the sun and 35 degree temperatures!
It looked like this outside my office...
This town is unreal!
And then the teachers and students complain about going to school until the end of June and go back in August. It is because you are closing school for "fog" and "snow" that are not there!
I will leave this post before I start getting into the adults driving and swarming Wal-Mart for milk, bread, and eggs...because they make me even more angry than the schools!!
