The Sky is Falling

It's a snow day!

School was canceled today for the forecast of "light" snow.

And we thought we had moved out of the South.

I was going to watch the inauguration with a couple of cups of coffee. Now I'll be watching it with a couple of crazy kids who are just waiting for the first flakes to fall.

Update: I'm so glad they had Itzhak Perlman and Yo-Yo Ma play before Obama's actual oath. My kids were not interested in the least (on their no-snow snow day) until I was able to draw them in with strings.

"Yo-Yo Ma is playing!" I called out and my daughter came running.

"Yo-Yo Ma is so young," she commented and then the kids settled in to watch the swearing in and speech.

And I cried my freaking eyes out.
