[quote=""Susan""] We also have a winter storm warning and more snow on the way for Tuesday night into Wednesday. Our last storm was Saturday. It seems all the snow storms this winter have been on the weekend. Perhaps I will get a snow day from school on Wednesday.[/quote]
Same here! 10-20 inches forecasted. I had taken the day off (pre-scheduled) today which was nice. If it gets too much, it'll be early dismissal. The fed govt is closed again.

You're only half way to a hundred and forty Ken. Many Happy Returns! :-)
