Another blizzard, seriously?

Today my kids had a 2 hour late start for school.  And an early out--at 11:00.  Yeah...they went to school for an hour from 10-11 am.  (The homeschooled kids had a normal school day, minus writing. We don't take snow days, we take spring days.)
Our weather forecast was for 1/2-1 inch of snow overnight and very windy conditions.   We woke up this morning to 4 inches of snow and it was still snowing.  The late start was a surprise we didn't expect.  As the morning progressed, several schools went ahead and cancelled.  Our school did not. After the kids left for school, the wind really picked up.  I mean REALLY.  I got a text an hour later that they were going to be home soon.
Here are some pictures of what it looks like around here.

No travel recommended, I-35 closed north of Ames.

Wind, snow, driveway and sidewalks drifted...again.

Extreme boredom (She likes to go to school. The girl, not the dog.)

Teenage boys playing video games. (Oh yeah...and asking me for food.)

Believe it or not, we don't have to count this as a snow day.  Apparently 1 hour of school counts as a day.  It's the only good thing about having a late start and an early out.
