Well, it's yet another beautiful and cloudless winter day here in Asheville. The roads are clear, and there's not a drop of precipitation in the air. However, the city has still decided to once again cancel school?
I'm glad that all the parents and caregivers of these fine children are unemployed and have a copious amount of time to dedicate toward the phone call that tells of the two-hour delay, early release or cancellation. I'm also glad that the school system seems to want to raise a generation of children who fear the threat of cold weather, rain or snow.
Perhaps those who decide that our kids are not adaptable or tough enough for anything but "ideal" conditions should retire from decision-making, bombard the groceries stores when it's not 75 degrees and sunny, and take a lesson from Zanny Zebra from The Sweet Pickles series, and have a rainy-day parade!
