You should post that in one of the recipe threads in the Family Forum (I think they are "stickied" at the top).

So I bought a game today, which I've been wanting to play for quite a while now. And it requires internet access to complete installation, which I think is silly, but whatever. The problem is, the servers are down or something at the place you have to log into to get the game to work, and I can't install the game now. Grrr.  Angry

LOL.
To be a principal a person has to have nine years of teaching experience, have any masters degree, and then take 18 graduate credit hours in Educational Leadership along with two semesters of internship.

I think you might be good at making decisions, but then again maybe not. But probably you are, or at least possibly. But take your time and think about it, unless you need to decide right away. That's my firm opinion on the matter, and nothing will change my mind. But I'm not really sure.

Last Thursday all the roads were frozen but classes were not cancelled and guess what. I was in a car accident. Thank God that it was minor, but next time our Super Intendant needs to exercise more caution when dealing with decisions like delaying school.

I didn't think it would get cold enough to freeze in Albequerque. I haven't been there in the winter, but in the summer of 2002, it was well over a hundred Fahrenheit. Glad you weren't hurt though.

Thanks Y. Yeah, it actually the winters in Albuquerque are fairly cold. It gets below freezing during most nights in the winter. I actually feel very lucky because Albuquerque is one of the places in New Mexico where we get four very distinct seasons.

I dare say schools won't open in Central MD until the middle of next week, at the earliest, or when the temps go above 45 degrees for 2 straight days, which could be March.   Undecided  The Naval Academy doesn't count.   Cool

At the earliest, I'm sure.  My class has been cancelled both nights this week.  I'm glad frankly that I won't have to attempt a drive across county to Germantown in this gale.

Yeah, we've been out yesterday and today, and as it won't get above freezing today, we don't expect any of the snow to melt. It's only about four inches (10 cm) total, but this is the South. Cheesy

I was raised in Springfield and I do not consider it the South, but rather the Midwest.  Then again, it's a subjective area.  Come to think of it, we might have had this conversation before.

It's the point where South, Midwest, and West meet. Meteorologically speaking, we're more like the South than West or Midwest. We get a lot of our weather patterns from the Gulf.

I hate when they do that, in bad storms they'll shut down I-5 in Northern California simply because people are too stupid to drive in the snow. So you end up having to chain up and drive these two lane mountain roads that are 2000-4000 feet higher in elevation than the interstate, iced over and with a foot of snow on the road, just to get around the road blocks on the interstate that only has a couple inches of snow on it.

Surely, a vast majority of people overestimate their skills and can't drive in snow.  One reporter stopped two men in a 4x4 truck who were on their way to work shortly after the city implemented Phase III of its snow emergency which ordered all vehicles off the road except for city emergency vehicles.  Yet, many places like schools and hospitals ordered essential personnel to brave the conditions and report to work.  Apparently, the law does not negate the obligation of essential personnel to report to work and this reporter didn't seem to get it (her father was the lead defense attorney in the Mayor's corruption case which resulted in her resignation).

I can't imagine the frequency of whiteout conditions on I-5 north of LA or the detours; I also doubt that those areas have seen 50 inches of blowing and drifting snow, which one would expect on I-80 (which shuts down for periods of time) going through the Sierras ... which are the same exact conditions the Mid-Atlantic has experienced for the past 6 days.

I give credit to MD for keeping Interstates and many primary highways passable during these conditions.

I'm actually talking about the Interstate north of Redding, CA...not LA. And no, it doesn't receive that much snow (which is largely why I think it was absurd to shut down the road, there may have been a foot of snow at the most), though the roads east and west of it through the mountains in the Cascades and Coastal Mountains, which I was forced to drive through, certainly do. And while if my responsibilities were in the region, I may very well have been excused because of the weather. But since they were in Idaho which was not affected by the storm, I was not...it's really not for the state to determine when I can and cannot drive, if I go to a remote area, get stuck, and get killed, that's my fault, no one else's.

I live in southern California right now, but I was born and raised just north of there. Spent many a day hunting in that area.
