No school for me or the boys tomorrow, either. Not entirely sure why. My whole block is completely clear - road and sidewalks. I guess it's pretty bad in the city, though.

Kris went out tonight for a new wireless router since our old one won't work with the new computer we just got. I was tempted to pack up the boys and go with him because I was curious how it looks out there!

I guess the story with the schools is that they're having trouble clearing the parking lots since the snow had to be transported elsewhere and many of the buses are still buried in snowdrifts. Not sure what's happening downtown, exactly.

Here are some picks I took today

http://www.facebook.com/photo.php?pid=31348368&l=f7d230deca&id=1381161905
http://www.facebook.com/photo.php?pid=31348522&l=ec2194b473&id=1381161905

The last one is the county plow that got stuck just past our house.

will be uploading mine soon. Took one last pic last night of a front-end loader clearing out the 3ft deep cul-de-sac. Snow piles are probably 10ft! None of those folks could get out of their driveways!

We have another day off here because the city is still working on clearing off all of the side streets.
