    Bad call on cancelling school today- roads were fine at 8;15 when going to work. What happen to the decision to send another e-mail at 8 am after assessing the situation? Got an e-mail at 6:30 instead. 2 hour delay would have been perfect amount of time to get the roads ready. Completely unnessecary to disrupt another school day.
