    We are still open, but many are delayed an hour or two.

    no and luckily (and normally) the nasty weather they predicted for the last 2 days never showed up.

    I think the ZERO weather temps they're predicting will show up though.

    At first they called with a two hour delay. Then they called with closing. We got rain, so ice is why we are closed. It means I don't have to work , so I'm planning on doing a little sewing. We're supposed to get more rain and snow today.

    Schools just east of us 15 miles and beyond are closed here. I guess we were right on the edge of the mess. We only got a dusting but I can hear some sleet hitting the window, I think its going to turn over to just rain later here...

    Closed here today, just west of Philadelphia.

    It snowed a couple inches last night and is now raining. I think they're worried about ice.

    My daughters and I are going to have a nice day together!

    2 hour delay here, but the roads are awful! The township roads don't look good at all! My son has a doctors appointment this afternoon so he is not going to school today. The school system here is crazy! The roads are DANGEROUS not only for busses but for kids that are driving to school with little to no expierence of driving in the snow. But, we can't shut down the school, just can't do it! GRRRRR

    No fourth graders for me today. YEA I'm about two hours away from a finished quilt top. Why am I online? Can't seem to walk away when I know I have the day off.

    I work in Troy, Michigan, and we have school today. However, it's only a half-day because of mid-terms. :wink: I had some ice where I live which is south of where I work. When I walked across the parking lot, however, there were some slick spots. It's mostly rain -- YUCK!!! It looks so gloomy today. I'm VERY happy that we didn't get all the ice that was predicted!!!!!! :-)

    We got sseveral inches last night, but this was a teacher work day today anyway. Kids don't go to school enough anymore. I know ours are at friends houses.
