The first of two photographs today, taken just after the school bus departed at about 8:35am.
A frigid day here at Totleigh-in-the-Wold. Perfect weather for the pajama day they have decided to have today at our son's elementary school! I kid you not. Now, I like the teachers and administration at our son's school. They have been most helpful, accommodating, and inclusive where our son is concerned during the last year. But you can't help but wonder when messages are emailed/sent home about stuff like this. And let's just forget for a moment that the very idea of pajama day runs counter to what I consider the dictates of good taste. Sigh. In any case, the weather is just how we like it in our neck o the wood. Cold, snowy, Norwegian sweater weather. Come to think of it, I'll wear one for my 2pm meeting on campus later this afternoon.
And the second. The snow is so cold that it squeaks underfoot. Our high for today is predicted to be 18 degrees F./-7.7 degrees C. with similar temperatures and more snow on the way throughout the next week.
