It was raining this morning when we woke up. Not raining- POURING , with thunder, lightening, and the wind was blowing so bad I thought we were getting a tornado.

The wind was howling throughout the whole house making Katelyn run around saying " I skeered Mommy, I skeered."

I turned on the news to watch the weather and Gavin says- " Is school cancelled?"

I quickly said- " No school is not cancelled!"

Gavin said " But why not? Its raining so hard!"

And I had to agree with him. It was raining so bad that I was seriously hoping that the news would tell me schools had closed.

All morning Gavin ran from the front door to the back door to check on the rain and wind. By the time we had to leave for school Gavin was telling me he would be the only one there because everyone else stayed home because of the rain.

Now in his defense, I do think this was the first time ever that I have taken him to school while it was raining. It usually rains in the afternoons here in Florida. So even though we are very much used to rain here, its never been storming this bad on the way to school.

And as he is moaning and groaning the whole drive to school, of course I thought about how I was going to blog about it.

But then I thought of the poor poor children who have to go to school in the snow. My god the freezing cold cold snow. And how anyone who is reading this who has snow outside their window is cursing at me right now for complaining about rain. Funny, huh?

LOL! That's so funny:) All the schools around here were closed early since it's ICY and COLD!! Now we are all wondering if there will be a delay tomorrow or will school be canceled. Wesley is so bummed because his Christmas concert was postponed.

I poured and thundered and lightened (is that a word) all day here too. Crazy!!

haha...yah, we're the ones with the snowstorms on the way to school...although my kids aren't in school yet, so I can still stay in and warmly watch the snowstorm from my front window!

Oh that's funny - a 'rain day' vs. a 'snow day'... We had the same rainy issues earlier this week - my Little Princess was disappointed that we didn't get snow so she could have a snow day...didn't ask about a 'rain day', so I think I'll keep that one to myself! LOL!

I agree...I think rain and snow should cancel school. And work. LOL!!

It was so cold the other morning I hated sending my little man out in it to school.
