    Just updated the website because we're closed, which hopefully means I can rejig the pdus in the server room and swap out some fibre patches.

    We had a slight dusting overnight, roads are fine but already over 200 calls on the emergency line to see if we are closed. (and that was just the teachers )

    3 inches of snow here, and we are open! Looks like ICT will be packed this break and lunch! I will be nice and evil and tell them they can come in, but only if they are doing work hehehe

    Sleet in Slough, I'm glad... otherwise I'd be uploading resources for staff to the VLE all day from home - like last year!

    Snow here, and some icy patches, I'm very glad I was taking it easy when the Golf coming the other way decided to ignore the driver's attempts to turn the corner. Both stopped in time, but still got the adrenaline flowing. Kids coming in saying "Can I go home at lunch?". Honestly it's daft, we're in you're in, school will continue as normal.

    I like snow days, I can remote in if i have to and have spent a great deal of time and effort pushing staff and students to use cloud based services so in the event of a snow day learning resources can still be delivered.... mwahahaha.

    I generally like snow, the cold, and even rain.

    A couple of decent warm layers, a waterproof coat, a good pair of boots and some music, makes for a nice walk.

    My car has decided it does not like the cold at all, and has refused to start for 4 days now. This morning, i didn't quite fancy the walk and decided to try the bus.

    3 Buses didn't show up at all, 25 minutes later one turns up, and charges me just under 3 for a return ticket less than 2 miles each way... 20 minute bus journey, and I would have been just as quick walking, albeit i was a little warmer and not quite as tired, as it's uphill all the way.

    Tomorrow I might give the mountain bike a try. Can't be any worse than paying an overpriced overcrowded bus that turns up half an hour late.

    I love the snow, and a day off if the school is closed is always welcome

    I dont understand how anyones work could build up if there is no-one in? Perhaps if you had lots of things planned for specific days, but personally for me if the school was closed tomorrow my workload would be the same on Thursday morning as it would be tomorrow morning

    we have err 1 cm of snow, oh maybe two if your lucky. Roads are clear, pathways, oh a little snow. And over 70 calls from parents to see if we are open.

    I have just uploaded a letter from the Head that I am sure some parents will object too, its a little strongly worded for todays parents.

    I've got a couple of inches here, and more coming down!

    The college IS open, but I can see us getting sent home sometime soon....

    It looks a proper blizzard out there! Yayyyyyyyyyyyy!!! Ok, so we'll be playing catch up (IF we do go) but it's worth it, if my son gets out of school early, so we can go sledging on the farm estate!!

    (By sledging....I don't mean standing next to an Aussie batsman and calling him a sheila!!!)

    In Derbyshire, the schools that did open this morning are closing at lunchtime mostly - including the one I work at. The school my daughters go to though is staying open all day - they are really hardcore there and will even put by a store of potatoes to do jacket spuds at lunchtime in case the dinner delivery doesn't get through!
