Now here's a morning when there SHOULD HAVE BEEN A LATE START of two hours for good reason. But after every district used a ton of 'cold' days the last few weeks they don't. And now will excuse every kid that comes in an hour late anyway there for making the first two hours pointless.

Not as bad as Atlanta, though! I know many commuters can't do this, but leaving real early has its advantages. You're moving slowly but still moving, unlike 7:30 or 8:00 when it's total gridlock. "Quality of Life"! (yeah, right)

Horrible commute? The weather outside today is "Minnesota". Certainly by reading the fore case last night, one could get up a little earlier and be able to get to work at the same time as normal.

On days like this, it's nice to be able to take city transit - and not drive! we need more light-rails from the suburbs!!

not sure why at midnight the strib predicted "throughout the course of thursday, one inch of snow in the twin cities, less in the northern suburbs" and i awoke at 6 am to six inches of snow in my driveway (northern suburbs) and piling more by the minute. maybe they wanted the ATL weathermen to look competent and feel better?

Went to bed to predictions of 1"-3." I thought "piece of cake." Woke up to heavy snow, a Winter Storm Warning, and predictions of 4"-6"!
