    Phil taking his time reminding the girls it’s Sunday! Besides, he has a shift today! Why else is he in his Uni?

    How long does it take to get 4 feet of snow. I remember 30 inch snows when I was a kid, and even if they started at night it still took a chunk of daytime to get that high.

    That’s what I love about snow days; they are unplanned. So often we have our weekends and vacations planned down to the second. Not so with snow days. It’s wonderful.

    So, is Phil leaving for his shift on his motorcycle?

    How dedicated is Val that she would consider going to work in 4 feet of snow? Cities are generally calling a snow emergency for that much. At least in SE Michigan they are.

    Now when there is a snow day, some school districts are providing the day’s lessons on-line, which the kids are expected to complete.

    At least they still get to stay home.

    So, in the store yesterday I saw an edition of Monopoly called “Cheaters Monopoly”. The game actually encourages you to cheat, and on the outside of the box it says something like “see what you can get away with while cheating”. This is marketed to kids 8 and up, and I was pretty disturbed by the message with this game.

    Sorry, Phil. Cops aren’t ‘non-essential’ employees. You still have to go in. I always thought it would be kind of ego-bruising to be told to stay home…

    Of course, now I drive a school bus, so I’m praying for a snow day along with all the kids!

    Only issue being that if there is four feet of snow on the ground, it is also piling up on a wire somewhere, and one more flake could cause a power outage.

    Once we had 12" of snow city shut down as no one could get out, all stopped.

    The most important ingredient for me is (power and) internet. But Scrabble or Upwords will work in a real emergency!

    Wish we have this down here in Phoenix – closing everything due to weather. Never happens.

    Four feet of snow overnight and no one’s freaking out? Where do these people live?? It certainly can’t be the Washington, DC area.

    I wonder whether the Snowstorm Emergency Kit also includes a propane stove and a transistor radio with sealed batteries. As the electrical wiring in the US is usually on poles and roofs to my knowledge a blackout during storms is quite common. Nothing to heat the cocoa and the pan for the popcorn on would render the preparation a bit useless.
