All wet, but not all white

The forecast was for 6 to 10 inches of snow, perhaps even a foot.

Instead, we got about 2 inches overnight, and the roads have been just wet this morning.

So, naturally, the Kingston school district is closed today. Unbelievable ... but not very surprising, given the district's track record.

Here's a suggestion for the people who make these decisions: Instead of looking at the forecasts, go to the window and look at what's actually happening outside!

Every night Monkeyboy in DC goes to bed with his jammies inside out, sure this will cause a snow day or at least a 2-hours-late-start school day.

(He's also sure flushing ice cubes down the toilet helps bring snow --- he says all 5th graders know it for a scientific fact, but I have drawn the line at the commode.)

Maybe I should just tell him to move to Kingston.
