Yesterday, for the second time in three weeks, I experienced a "two hour delay" for the start of school. Unlike the ever-popular Snow Day (which engenders the Happy Dance), the Delay only gets a mild shuffle. Why? Because two hours screws things up.
It's not enough time to go back to sleep, or to really accomplish anything essential. It's just enough time to make breakfast, take a more leisurely shower, dress slower and then go in to work.
So I'm ignoring them from now on (unless, of course, the winds and sleet make driving so bad that delay is prudent). It's better to be at work doing, you know, work, than it is to be home trying to occupy myself but keeping an eye on the clock so I don't go over my two "free" hours. Right?
