Anyone notice we received 46.4 inches of snow in five days? Yeah, that.
On Sunday they closed our school system for the whole week. The WHOLE week, so that means all classes and activities are cancelled.
Her MUN sponsor teacher spent all day Monday contacting people [the principal, superintendent] trying to find a way to still get the kids to Williamsburg on Wednesday.
I looked at the Squirrel and said "I don't care if she does find a way to go to the conference. There is another foot of snow coming on Wednesday and I am not sending you 3 hours away when I don't even know what the conditions are somewhere else. You are not going."
Boy did that make her mad. She snatched up her laptop and huffed out of the room. She pouted and wouldn't talk to me for the rest of the day except to walk through the kitchen and whine "Not fair" under her breath.
Yesterday - now named "Blizzard 2010" - the day they were supposed to leave? There was a fifty car pile up on Highway 64 - which is the [only] route they would have been on to get to Williamsburg yesterday.
Was Momma right? Or was Momma right? Ha.
Honestly it was a moot point because no one in the school system was going to approve this trip after all the snow - but in case they did I asserted my parental rights and denied it. I mean, how stupid would it have been to let her go?
Besides her safety, I am just happy she is so forgetful that she hadn't turned in the 130 dollar trip fee yet and I can rip up the check. YAY! More in the budget for me.
