Yesterday, as we spent 20 minutes out at the bus stop in below zero wind chills waiting for a late bus, the boys and I talked hopefully of the possibility of getting a snow day today due to the big old storm system. But that 20-24" of predicted snow didn't materialize because the storm track shifted about 100 miles north of its predicted path. We only got about 8" of snow--not. even. close. to enough to make them cancel school here. EXCEPT!!! As the snow shifted to sleet and freezing rain this morning, we got a lovely coating of ice. Thus bringing the miracle of a day off of school.
Oh, but poor Gray. :( A miracle day off of school, and he can't even enjoy it. He went to school yesterday feeling fine. Shortly after he got there though, he started feeling lousy and his teacher sent him to the nurse's office. She took his temp (no fever), so she just had him lie down for a bit and then sent him back to class. An hour later, in gym class, he started shaking uncontrollably and the coach sent him back to the nurse. He now had a temperature of 102.8. Obviously, he was sent home. Where he added vomiting to his list of ills. And after a not so restful night of non-sleep, his temp was up to 104 this morning. So this "weather day"...he's not even getting to enjoy it.
Now, his brother, on the other hand... :D
