Everything's Melting!Things have finally warmed up after the snow last week. Normally when it snows here it melts the next day, but this time it stayed cold for a while. I don't think it got above freezing all last weekend (although it was sunny during the day so the main roads cleared up), and last night was the first time in a week that the nightly low has been above freezing. It rained all night, which has washed away most of the baked-on snow and ice and means that I can finally drive around without worrying which roads are steep or icy.
The kids missed school last Thursday and Friday, then by Monday things were OK but it was a holiday, then it snowed another inch on Tuesday morning so no school then either, and we had a late start yesterday before things are finally back to normal. With this, the windstorm, and the snow in late November they have missed 6 days of school so far and everyone is wondering how they will make the time up.

Don't you mean "everyone's wondering how they will get their '6 kid free weekdays' back"?
