The last quote reminds me of the first year we moved into this house.  During our first Xmas here there was a really bad snow storm.  I think it was the first year anyway…it might have been the second year.  Anyway, Rich and I have this tradition where we go up to his parents for a lunch holiday meal and then we go to my grandmothers for holiday dinner.  It was snowing really hard and we decided to stop at the corner deli to get some beer to take up to his parents with us.  I don’t know why they were open on Xmas, but anyway that is beside the point.  We then got back on Division Street going up the hill.  We were in Rich’s little put-put Toyota, and we got stuck behind one of the “Hanover Township Road Department’s Plow Trucks”.  By “Hanover Township Road Department Plow Truck” I mean, a 4×4 rear wheel drive Dodge Ram 1 ton.  Yeah.  It BARELY made it up the hill.  It was humorous to say the least.

Oh well.  What can I say?  Mother nature hates me.

This leads me to one question:  Why do school districts advertise early dismissals anywhere from 10-12pm if they get in school at 8 or 9 o’clock.  What is the point of even going?  I mean really.  Are these kids going to learn anything today knowing they are getting out of school early?  Besides, I thought it didn’t count as a full day of school unless the kids were served lunch?  I really doubt these kids will be eating lunch at 10 or 11 am.
