Things that are pissing you off. - Page 3952

post #59266 of 65030
We had a meeting with the Lower School principal at the school we are strongly considering for our daughter scheduled for last week. On that day, it snowed, and the school was closed; no meeting.

We re-scheduled for Monday. On that day, it rained, and the school was closed; no meeting.

We then re-scheduled for today. Today, it rained, and the school was closed; no meeting.

I sincerely do not understand how a school can close because of rain.

Think of all those poor teachers whose spring breaks are being cut into right now. :nest:

Call it the liability effect. Considering what's just happened down south, you could also call it the Atlanta effect.

Monday we did have wintry mix. Parts of the area got snow, parts got rain, parts got some of each. The "line" of where the snow turned into wintry mix was somewhere north and west of town. In the early morning hours, when no doubt schools had to make a call, the line appeared that it might come into the city. Some parents were definitely in the snow zone. This school in particular buses a large %age of the student population in, and so the buses in certain areas probably had a tough row to hoe. Where I live, we may have gotten wet, chunky snow for 2-3 hours in the afternoon. By evening, everything was rain, and because there was still a lot of snow from last week and the week before on the ground when the storm started, with the rain there was actually less snow on the ground when I got home than when I had left. Abundance of caution shit.

Today, it was slick. Everything was coming down as rain or sleet, but a lot of it was freezing on sidewalks and on trees. It's actually quite beautiful. The roads were totally fine coming in; I was at work on-time and without incident. But some places, trees came down and there were power outages. Such is the case at the school in question - the woman had offered to come in even if school was closed, but with no power, there's no point.

Anyways, I think school should have been open both days, but a few pussy parents who would inevitably complain that Muffy couldn't make it because of the snow and it's unfair to make her miss classes and have to catch up ruin the barrel.

Stay far away from mother daughter cat fights especially if you're in her room. You will die.

11 inches of snow. Then the wind had to kick up and cause it to drift. Now the temperature is heading for -10F with all kinds of fun windchill values. A high of 7F tomorrow. and then the real fun begins again a day or so later with more snow and more wind and more arctic temperatures. Oh and we get to do it all again early next week. WTF! could someone tell me how in the hell I ended up in fucking Fargo ND?

I got in around 3pm and proceeded to shovel the wet slushy 8"+ snow off my driveway. I also shoveled my neighbor's driveway too (she's an elderly italian woman). I had this idea that I could use the shoveling as exercise, but I didn't eat much today (I think I had a croissant in the morning) and powered through, and towards the end I bonked.

The italian lady brought me out some freshly baked pound cake, but was too tired to even eat it. I forced my self to drink some water and passed out on my couch. I just woke up and now I'm ailing.

Now the landscaping guy knocks on my door and is angry because he thinks I hired someone else and I tell him I shoveled it myself and we have a tense back and forth (because the fucking guy either shows up at 1:30am and wakes up the whole neighborhood, or he doesn't come until after 7pm (where its pretty much useless by then).

LOL! I hope the next one goes a little East and gets you instead of me. You've been dodging bullets all winter. Lucky bastards.
