The snow is such a tease. Yes, we got snow, and it was cold today, and the traffic was ridiculous. You'd think these people all lived in Arizona and it was the first time they drove in it. But not nearly enough snow to make it an event.

The atmosphere at school was crazy this afternoon-- why the Valentine's Party is such a huge deal is way beyond me. The whole school party thing is out of control. Magicians, storytellers, classrooms transformed into haunted houses, off campus for bowling and swimming--- way beyond out of control. We're trying to get a handle on it, but the parents aren't easy to convince. It's elementary school, people. Kindergartners don't need cupcakes the size of a small cake.

And Friday is just around the corner.
