Okay, so it wasn't quite the "Snowmaggedon" that was predicted, but we did get a fair dump in my neighbourhood. (Even my husband had the day off due to snow; and seriously, his boss would NOT give him the day off under normal circumstances.) While the TDSB may have been a little overcautious in calling a board wide "Snow Day", I think it would have been worse if they hadn't and there had been an accident or kids snowed in at a school somewhere.
It was actually really lovely to have a day in the middle of the week with the whole family home. We played Uno, we read some books, we played video games. No one had to be anywhere so there was no rushing, no screaming about being late. I baked, I made chili, I made rice crispie treats for the first time ever (Note to self: hot marshmallows are a lot like napalm.) and even got to play outside with Beege.
My only complaint would be that I didn't get my standard daily allotment of "me time."
Here's some fun stuff to watch: Rick Mercer mocking Toronto, and "Snow in Toronto" a special report. I'm going to learn to embed these properly someday, I swear.
