Today is a snow day in NYC.  Schools are closed.

My stepson is happy.  Young Ladrinka, who has been home sick all week and was counting on today to complete his recovery thinks that it is completely unfair and will probably prolong his illness to next Monday, as a makeup day and my lovely, beautiful daughter cried, because her class was spoosed to have a field trip and she was really looking forward to it.  Young Ladrinka assumed that she was so upset because the field trip was to a chocolate factory or the Nintendo store or something, but no, it was to a museum.

You can probably understand Young Ladrinka’s confusion. I think he may have suffered a relapse from the shock.

I’m first and expect huge NY packages to arrive in my postbox and award me for my hasty arrival …. don’t give me that “it’s snowing” routine either….

Auuggghh. I just dove off the couch in a frenzy thinking my dog was chewing on my daughter’s shiny blue iPod Nano, but, alas, it was only a tube of toothpaste. What were we talking about?

Sorry Ladrinka is ill. Missing a museum field trip is VERY tramatic! When we were up there a couple of years ago, I didn’t get to go to the Met – I cried for a couple of hours…until Hubs took me to the top of the Entire* State building (*my youngest calls it that – I LOVE IT!).

Two snow days in one NYC public school year is totally unheard of. Here are my thoughts on the matter, as a native New Yorker:

Sick on a snow day? Poor young Ladrinka. And I’m certain that they’ll reschedule the field trip, won’t they? Drag man.

I think most kids are about sick of the freakin snow days. There has been so many this year that my kid may be going to school thru the summer.

Bloomberg is school cancel crazy this winter. I think he gets an extra billion every time he shuts down nyc schools.

We haven’t had a snow day here since October. I really love it, personally. Then again, I’m not an 8 year old boy.

Being sick on a no-school day is cosmically wrong. So is missing a field trip.

Snow days? Nope. Never had ’em, never will. Oh sure, we’ve heard of them, when we’re telling fantastical stories round the campfire. But no one ever actually SEEN one. You people and your wild yarns!
