Concentrated Dose of Winter
On the first day of the arctic blast I understood the reasoning behind our school system's 2 hour delay. Some of the schools have antiquated systems that might not be up to the task (we are in the land of the heat pump) and then there is the very real possibility that the buses might not all start up. A 2 hour delay gave the powers that be time to check things before opening up the schools.
So you would assume that since there were no problems school would be back to normal on Wednesday, the following day. But that is where you would be wrong, we got a second 2 hour delay. Meanwhile Chicago laughs at Virginia's cold weather paralysis.
As for today, things were all back to normal. It was starting to warm up and I got inspired to go outside and take a few winter pictures. So I present to you Ice Crystals and Ice Columns.
