I wonder how many of you had treacherous journeys into school?
It took me 40 minutes to get there. We had to walk, because the side roads are too dangerous. My poor 3 year old (only just 3) was sore and cold after 20 mins, and where people had thought to clear the snow - we thought it was safe to walk - but in fact the area was sheet ice - we couldn't tell.
So we drop off the older child who is wanting to run and throw snowballs - but not good near busy roads! And then poor daughter and I have to make the return journey!
I know the head teacher is trying to make the best decision but I don't think it is fair.
Cars were skidding and sliding on the school road, there is no way they could stop quickly if they wanted to.
My sister actually called her husband back from work to try and get the car off the drive - he couldn't get it off either!
Grrrr - Snow is lovely and fun with fresh fall we had such a lovely day yesterday - but today we are paying back for the fun.
Oh well - it will all be forgotten in a few days
