Those fierce winds we had yesterday forced the cancellation of schools. County roads were drifted and dangerous. In fact, on my way home from work tonight, they were still snow covered and slick. Intersections were hazardous.
So, obviously, I didn’t have a snow day. But I gave my secretary the day off to stay home with her small children. I am happy that I can be flexible enough that she could stay home to take care of her children. I have a friend who spent her scheduled day off to babysit for her neighbor’s hyper active five year old because his preschool and day care were closed today.
I don’t know what parents are supposed to do if they have to work and they have young children. They can’t be left home alone. I don’t pay a lot in my office, but I can offer the flexibility for snow days.
Thankful that I can at least offer that.
More snow on the way tonight (at least it will only be a couple of inches). But really, I’m tired of winter already…and it hasn’t even arrived yet. 93 days until spring 🙂
