Talk about a miserable week for everyone this passed week. The school has been closed down for Monday and Tuesday because of the power being out and due to the road conditions, the buses did not run. Then this past Friday was PD Day, so there sure wasn’t much school for the whole week.
The storm either hit late Sunday evening or early Monday morning was a bad one with a lot of heavy wet snow which caused a lot of road closures and power was lost everywhere. In some locations power was out for two and a half days and also some places in the country never got power back until Thursday afternoon. So hopefully this is not a indication of what kind of winter we will be getting this year.
