School's out for Summer, or till Summer

Yes it appears school has been canceled in southeast Michigan until the weather improves. I could really care less, I'm off school, but OurDad is raising a stink and threatening to write letters to the Woundtight Schools superintendent and the local paper. Granted were not off school because of snow or ice. It's just too cold, fine with the GirlChild and me, but you should hear OurDad.

"It's going to be this cold all week. This is still Michigan isn't it. People know how to dress for this: coat, scarf, mittens, snow pants, hat, long socks and boots. It's that simple simple. It's not like you have to walk two miles to the bus stop."

I admit there is something fishy going on since yesterday it was colder than today, and we had school. Some schools were closed yesterday because they couldn't start the buses, but that was not the problem in the WoundTight District. So I can only guess that the WoundTight kids complained so much about having school when most of the metro area got to stay home that they convinced their parents to call the superintendent and demand a day off too. "It's only fair, and it's too cold."

I'll take it, really what did OurDad have to do today anyway...

What a crock of shit! The WT school district's policy on school closings for cold weather is -30 with wind chill. But it's nowhere near that. I think superintendent, Grouchy Faker, caved to the pressure.

It's not like the kids are going outside to play anyhow. Ugh. I still had class. I still have to work. I was called a million times for trivial things by a bored five year old.

You know, that orifice the school officials have their head shoved up is pretty warm, so why no school?

Apparently, your blog is down until the summer as well.

Sorry me, been busy, maybe I did need a kick in the rear to get going again.

No guilty blogging! I took a hiatus as well because I couldn't think of a single interesting thing to blog and I'm a bit slammed with my semester this week and next.

(Sorry, don't feel like being me so I'm just "me" today.)
