Snow Day #3 Anyone else out???

Got the message 15 minutes ago. My district is closed tomorrow... this will be day number 3 and I am doubting we will have school on Friday as well... These near zero temperatures are just too much for southern oklahoma...

I live on a road where 3 school busses drive on and i went out this morning and there is about 4 inches of packed ice & snow and it is very slick... My dad drove by my school today and you can't tell where the parking lot is. If you didn't know it was there you wouldn't know where it was...

Hope everyone is staying safe and being warm!!!

Same here, tomorrow is day #3 this week, 4th day this year.

I live in Northern TX. I was telling DH some enterprising person should but a plow attachment for their truck and buy a few bags of sand. They'd make a TON of money plowing parking lots and driveways.

People can shovel their drives, but then can't drive in the deep snow and drifts on the street. I can't imagine what rural road would be like for buses. I'm guessing we are out the rest of the week, but probably won't get the official "call" until later.

We had yesterday and today and I hope not tomorrow. I had to take a personal day Fri and I need to go in tomorrow to get stuff ready for the sub! I drove to get our mail today and the main road to my house seems clear, so I think we'll go.

Yep, here in North TX they just called just about every district. This has NEVER happened! I have worked here 13 years and we have never taken two in a row, let alone three. This 8 month pregnant woman is excited! lol FRI looks doubtful too as the ice is going NOWHERE!

In the perfect world, I would have off and DD17 would go to school! Yikes! After 2 days we have had enough mother-daughter bonding.

We are on day #2. If it's cancelled we won't know until tomorrow. We had a terrible ice storm last night. I've never seen so many trees down from ice! I bet we will have school, but if we don't it will be because of freezing temps and icy back roads and sidewalks. Poor walkers!

I'm in central Ohio

Here in north Texas also. I have mixed feelings about being out so much but I am going to go ahead and enjoy it! Laying in bed and eating all day sounds great to me for the third day in a row!

We have had two snow days this week. The kids are out again tomorrow because of conferences. I wonder how many I will need to reschedule?

Tomorrow will be Day 9 and our third snow day this week. My kid's school district has already called school for tomorrow. I am just waiting for the call. I think school will be closed for students but I think staff will have to report. That's fine with me. I don't mind going to school. I am tired of the snow days!

Day 2 for us in Michigan! They have been able to clear the main roads of the drifts but the secondary roads are covered in snow! If we get the massive wind like they are saying tonight into tomorrow, we could be on Day 3 on Friday. At this point, I would rather have school on Friday than not. Everyone with snow days, enjoy, be safe and stay warm!

I am tired of snow days. I am sure that any other days off that were planned for the rest of the school year will be school days now. I like it so much better when we get a day here and there instead of so many in a row when we can't get anything outside of the house done.

Day 3 in a row for me, too! I'm in NW Ohio and just got the text that we will be closed tomorrow. I'm thinking it is because we are a rural school and the wind is blowing the snow around, but most of the other districts around us are just delayed.

Our school is in the country in the middle of nowhere. They posted some pictures on the school facebook page. You can't see the whole side of the elementary building because of the drift going up the side (no windows, no doors, basically the roof and just below it). I don't know what the front looks like, but it usually drifts pretty high in the front too.

We had about 23 inches and some of the roads are still closed. Also found out that some of the schools have no power. I wouldn't mind one more day to make it 3.

I have not had a full week of school since we came back from Christmas break. We have had over 70 inches of snow since then and it is all still on the ground. We were out again today due to an ice storm. I really want to go back to school tomorrow but a delay would be nice cause I am sure the roads will be very icy still tomorrow morning.
