Then, while I was reading e-mail later in the morning, I got a second call. No, not the "School is closed" call, but the call from the 'rents saying they were nearly ready to head off to the airport. (Another week in Santa Rosa for them, lucky pair!) I decided to get dressed (was still in jammies) and go next door. As I was putting on my school clothes, I had one of the local stations on and was reading the other school delays & closures. And then "Newton Local School: Closed" showed up. Ooooh!
So I called the 'rents and said I'd drive them to the airport. I already knew they're getting back LATE on Monday, but I've done it before and I can do it again. Shortly after that call, I got my official "school's closed" call. Then I drove the parents in the icky weather and got them safely to the airport. And got myself safely back to town. I stopped into the school to do a couple of things, then got my mail, then went home.
What's a girl to do all day when she's off work? Play City of Heroes, of course! I played from about noon until five something. Managed to get Icy Hot Man up from level 13 to 14. (Since I'm not a power leveler, that's an accomplishment.) And then spent the rest of the time watching The Monkees.
It was a lovely day for a snow day. :-)
