We are having the first snow day since we moved up here. That is... WE are having a snow day, although the school is still open! We had record snow falls over the weekend, I think about 20cm since Friday - which is really a lot for up here. I think Dawson Creek got even more. The buses aren't running today, the mail delivery is cancelled for today but the schools are still open. Apparently they have a clause that states the schools will never close down due to weather because years ago some parent dropped their kid off at school and went to work... not realizing the school was closed. Everything turned out ok with that kid, but the result was that the school's will always be open on school days... but I think that some days, you just have to call a snow day anyway... besides, this way they can help me shovel!
