Wait a sec'...Who was excited?

by David Kuharski

Remember when you were a kid and you were eagerly awaiting the school closings report on the radio?  Once you figured out where your district fit alphabetically you sat on pins and needles.  I remember the DJ ticking off each district.  Inevitably I was either elated by the closing announcement OR stunned that some nimrod opted to keep school open when EVERY other district decided to close.  SO-- imagine my surprise when I saw this from my wifey on my FB timeline...

No my kids haven't hijacked their mom's FB page...

I can understand completely how Mom's and Dad's would be frustrated about school closings.  They don't have a choice about going to work and they now have to figure out who will watch their kids.  In this case, I'm guessing they'd rather the hassle then risk the dangerously cold temperatures.  Are you a parent who did what my wife did and is excited about schools being closed tomorrow?
