    Official "2nd Day Stuck at Home" Thread

    yesterday was due to all the snow and Des Moines having cancelled classes. Our kids daycare is closed when Des Moines Schools are. They cancelled again today and my wife works closer to home so she went to work.

    don't want to take the kiddies outside when the wind chill is so bad. anymore disney channel and my head might explode. can only look at the internet so long. and my wife cookies yeterday and they are almost gone. anybody else stuck today?

If I didn't drink this beer, they might be out of work and their dreams would be shattered. Then I say to myself, "It is better that I drink this beer and let their dreams come true than selfish and worry about my liver."

    Re: Official "2nd Day Stuck at Home" Thread

    I'm staying home today as the 30 mile drive isn't worth me ending up in the ditch in -15 degree windchill. Rather be safe than sorry. And I have plenty of sick/vacation time to cover it.


    Just in case you didn't know... I'm a girl.

    I would have gone crazy if ISU closed again today. At least living in campustown I was able to walk to the bar yesterday, but other than that I couldn't go anywhere.

    I'm the only one in my office today. I have the benefit of only living less than 2 miles from my office.

    I'm ready to go back to work tonight. Ran errands this morning, and that was surprisingly refreshing.

    Re: Official "2nd Day Stuck at Home" Thread

    Made the attempt to get to downtown DM from Norwalk. Left home, got onto a street near my house, wasn't even going fast, lost control of my escape, almost hit somebody head on, saved it from going into the ditch. Said screw this and went back home.


    Watch it man there's a beverage here!

    Re: Official "2nd Day Stuck at Home" Thread

    I actually managed to make it to work yesterday while the wife stayed home with the kid. Got an email at 4:00 yesterday from the school stating they wouldn't be open again today, so guess who has to stay home today...ME! Sesame Street is already getting on my nerves, might have to look for a movie or two.

    Re: Official "2nd Day Stuck at Home" Thread

    This is the 3rd day at home for me, school cancelled again. Only problem is that we will probably have to go into June before school is out. It is just too early to be missing school because I can about guarantee we will miss some in Jan. and Feb.

    I really need to bite the bullet and get some dedicated snow tires/rims. 215/45YR18 "summer tires" on my car are a complete joke. I have to plan every move about a mile ahead. My traction control is lit up about 99% of the time and my stability control sounds like it's running calculations for the space shuttle.
