On Snow days, you get to stay home, enjoy the fire, drink hot chocolate or cider, and play in the snow. On late start days, you have to wait until the roads thaw a little, get in to work with increased traffic, leave before it gets dark so you can get home before the roads refreeze, and still get in a full day's work. Late start days disrupt that carefully balanced schedule most families develop to get everyone out the door on time. It gets especially frustrating when different family members have different start times. Definitely a traffic jam for the shower! Give a me plain old snow day anytime ! ~ Michael S. Pauley
