The kids' phone call came shortly after 06:00 and mine announced itself about an hour later. It was pretty obvious that the snow wasn't going anywhere and as far as I know, all schools in the vicinity are closed. The traffic person on LBC radio advised us to only go out if we felt like having a 5 hour journey into work.
So here we are. The kids have pretty much drenched theselves in the garden, Dana is watching a DVD and I'm wondering if I'm going to get any lesson preparation done. I look out of the window and huge flurries are whisking past the window as the white blanket on the hedge gets higher and higher.
It's definitely a snow day and none of us are going anywhere for the forseeable future.
