So, time to roll the school closing dice again.

They canceled school today. Well, first they delayed it, and then they canceled it. And now I’m sitting here, waiting to see if they’re gonna pull that trigger again for tomorrow. They usually wait until the worst possible time to do it, too; if I knew now that there was going to be a delay, I could not set the alarm because I wouldn’t have to be up early to get the kids ready. But nooooo.

While we’re on the subject: I’ve let this slide, because I’ve been told Maryland isn’t used to snow and ice and rain. I’ve been here for almost two decades now. It snows and ices and rains every year. They should learn to get used to it, and they should start budgeting more money for winter road crews. Because the excuse, as they say, has worn thin.

    Heh.

    About two decades ago, a couple of unusually mild winters, global warming hyperbole, and wealthy Californian immigrants who didn’t like seeing their taxes paying for “unnecessary things” all conspired to convince the city of Twin Falls, Idaho to sell off nearly their entire fleet of snowplows.
    That brilliant plan went about as well as you’d expect it would in a state that borders Canada.

    The truly amazing thing, was that the council kept doubling down on the obvious stupidity.
    Last I heard, they still only had two trucks, and it took them 3 days to dig out from a completely unremarkable blizzard that only dropped about four inches of snow
