First day of school


Messy storm strikes parts of the East
Dec. 16, 2010 6:17 am ET

A winter storm brings snow, sleet and ice to the Ohio Valley, Mid-Atlantic and parts of the Southeast today.

A swath of 2 to 6 inch snowfall is expected from southern Ohio through central and southern Virginia. Snow should lift northward into Washington, DC, Baltimore, the Del-Mar-Va Peninsula and southern New Jersey with an inch or two of accumulation possible.

A wintry mix of snow, sleet and freezing rain is forecast across eastern Kentucky, extreme southern Virginia and central and western North Carolina. Some light snow and sleet accumulations are possible before the precipitation changes over to freezing rain. Precipitation should be light enough to prevent any large-scale power outages, but it will be heavy enough to cause icy road conditions.

Freezing rain mixed occasionally with some sleet continues this morning in eastern Tennessee, southern North Carolina, western South Carolina and northern Georgia. Temperatures should slowly rise through the morning hours with most areas changing over to non-freezing rain by this afternoon. Tricky travel will continue in all areas until the temperatures go above the freezing mark.

Oh yes, school is canceled today! WOO! (And, they called before I got all ready!) 
First day of school

No school again!

School has been canceled again for tomorrow. We ended up with about 3-4 inches of snow, but then it rained a bit and now it's completely frozen. This basically makes our entire town a giant ice skating rink (very fun, but difficult to get around).

Tomorrow will be spent doing lesson plans and getting organized for math and reading classes as well as packing and cleaning. And, I'll be traveling home on Saturday. Woo! Winter break has started.
