School started two hours late yesterday and today because of freezing temperatures and ice. I realize other students and even teachers may have ice around their houses, but there is no ice around the school and there is no ice around my house, so I'm really frustrated by the snow delays. I grew up going to school in subzero temperatures and piles of snow up to my knees, so it's just bizarre to me to delay school because it's sunny, dry, and twenty degrees out. That's the definition of a beautiful day in Minnesota.
Also, it seems likely school will start late every day this week - and at least two of the four adults who normally care for Elliott are sick. Oh, and it's the last week of the quarter to get work done.
