    Killing time

    Here I am, Up since 6am in my dressing gown, cup of coffee, PC booted and ready to go, waiting for HT to close the school so I can update the various websites (ours, radio, twitter...)

    Many local schools are closed until Monday, announcing last night as over 3 inches of snow fell in an hour and the temperature plummeted (Predicted high today -3 yay!) Roads lethal and I live 10 mins walk from school.

    HT is up, but hasn't decided yet... Please hurry up, I want to go back to bed!

    I woke at 5.30 thinking it was past my alarm time at 6.20am. Quick panicked and woke myself up checked the my emails only to realise my mistake. Couldn't get back to sleep so waited 30 mins for the email saying it was closed as expected. Study day for me.

    We have had 230 calls into the new recorded snowline this morning, which is 230 that we didn't have to take on the switchboard.
