    Snow days are alright, I guess. Growing up on SoCal we had smog alert days but no snow days.

    My daughter likes the first snow day but after that she'd prefer to go back to school. Too many parents use school as childcare/babysitting and those folks are a bit peeved about having to arrange for who is going to watch the kids.

    Here in Chicago, everyone got a snow day. When they announced that school was canceled yesterday, everyone in the boy's locker room said "F*CK YEAH!" at the exact same time. (I have gym final period.)

    Snow days are fun. Makes me think of the song "Snowbound" from Donald ***an's great Kamakiriad album.

    Snow Days! I live in Northern Virginia and used to get them all the time, but last year we only got one. Haven't gotten snow yet and if we do I doubt we get more than two days off if at all :(
