Ooops, MOM! You slipped out there! Careful, let me help you up!

I kept my son home from school today, even though the schools were open. I called him in sick so it wouldn't be called an unexcused absence. It looked like it was going to get really icy, and since I have to drive a lot further than most parents, and since his Dad has been out of town and might not make it back because of the weather, I figured I didn't want him home alone at his Dad's (where he catchest the bus in the morning). It has fizzled after some freezing rain and snow. Accumulations on the grass and garden, but not on the street. Looks like the district called it (but my university closed--there are so many commuters that they no doubt figured they wouldn't have many show up). Oh, well. I'll feel guilty for a little while--he's a good student and hasn't missed any other days and every day is important.
