It seems that whenever there's a major weather event that requires schools to close, e.g. flood or ice, it tends to land on a holiday weekend. Our extended weekends get really
extended, as seen with Memorial Day 2015
and Labor Day 2017
. If I had the powers of Miss Cleo
, I would've planned a proper vacation out of this city. And on this past Martin Luther King Jr. weekend, it happened again. This time, it was due to icy conditions.
The kids' 3-day holiday break became a long 5-day break (school closed on Tuesday and Wednesday). My job allows me to "work from home" (lucky for me since I didn't have to venture out on the icy roads) but I usually work out of a coffee shop since it's damn near impossible to get anything done at home. And now with all of the kids... forgettaboutit. But because of the weather, the coffee shops that I frequent were also closed so I had to actually work from home.
