Yet Another Weather Related Freakout

A few days ago, one of the local news stations predicated THIRTY inches of snow in the city.  But they were the only ones. Everyone else say six inches.  Quite a discrepancy! But let the FREAKOUT begin!

I recently explained to O that if we get enough snow, school close and we get to stay home.  This has brought a whole new level of getting ready in the morning. In addition to checking her temperature, we now have to check the news for THE BIG SNOWSTORM!  This morning, again she was disappointed when the massive snow she was expecting didn’t come. Don’t worry kid!  The people who were following the thirty inches forecast, and the NYC public school kids who will probably have to go to school until August based on the number of days they have to make up!

So yet again it hits on the weekend, and yet again I have to figure out ways to entertain a 4 year old.  We were going to go the library, but that’s out.  Maybe on Sunday if it clears up we will go to an ice cream shop for burger fries and ice cream sundae! What better way to celebrate than with a cold ice cream sundae??? (Eastern European grandmas would have a heart attack at eating ice cream in the winter!)
