Snowmageddon Bomb Cyclone Polar Vortex

Some flurries are coming down in Dover, Delaware right now.  It isn’t as cold as it’s been, but that is coming again on Saturday when a polar vortex (love that name) brings temperatures into the low teens and possibly single digits.  I just got back from Trivia Night at Frazier’s Restaurant in Dover.  My team came in 6th place out of 11 teams.  Some questions were easy, like what number is Star Wars: A New Hope in the series.  Or who played Max in the Mad Max movies (and not the one that came out a few years ago).  But  my team stumbled on the big scoring questions.  Like who was Canadian or American out of these choices: The Weekend, Adam Levine, Kesha, and Shawn Mendes or which places went from highest to lowest in population: New Hampshire, New Brunswick, and New Caledonia.  But I always have a good time when I go whether my team wins or loses.

My son’s school district, Capital, already has a two-hour delay.  I read somewhere tonight Milford is already closed.  I’m pretty sure Capital will close but I won’t get the call until 6:30am tomorrow according to the robo-call from Superintendent Dan Shelton.  Luckily my house has gas in case the power goes out.  I have plenty of candles.  And snacks in case I can’t cook.  And books.  I have tons of books!  Now I’m going to watch the Season 11 première of the X-Files.  Glad I set up the DVR before heading out to Trivia Night!

Just a random post here.  No big education scoop.  Just thinking out loud.  Be safe if you should happen to drive tomorrow.  And stay warm!  Oh, and one more thing, get your car battery checked.  Mine died last week in the polar vortex of 2017.  Glad I was able to get a new one ahead of the next one.  Cause baby, it’s gonna be cold outside!

I am a proud parent of a son with Tourette's Syndrome and several other co-morbidities. I write on this blog to educate other parents so they know a bit more about not only special education, but all the really bad things that are happening with public schools in Delaware and the USA. We are all in this together, and if our children aren't able to advocate for themselves it's up to us parents! We need to stop letting companies run our schools, and demand our children get a proper education. Our Departments of Education in our states have become weak with fear from the bullying US DOE, and we need to take back our schools!
