Our Journey Raising Two Children with Special Needs

This blog chronicles our life raising two children, Nicholas 14, diagnosed with Prader-Willi Syndrome and Weston 17, diagnosed with Autism/Asperger's/ADHD. It's the ups, the downs, the joys, the sorrows and most importantly, the beauty of living a life less perfect, a life more meaningful.

Stormin' In

The new year has stormed into New England bringing with it statewide school closings and a foot of new snow.

Most schools closed today with the exception of poor Nick's. Fortunately, I decided to question authority and defy the superintendent's decision to keep school open. It sure does feels good to do that every once in a while. I called it an official snow day and allowed the relieved boy to stay at home.

It is a good thing I did.

It is 9 degrees F. We live near the coast, so unlike the inland areas of Massachusetts who have received very little snow, we have about 7 inches of snow already with another foot or more expected overnight. It will become very windy this evening, with temps dropping below zero.

Pete is still working in Boston. It is safe to assume that he will be home very late. Weston decided to brave the elements and help his father get a jump on the shoveling.



 
Still more snow, blowing winds and falling temps to come.
We are hoping that we do not lose power.
Overnight today and tomorrow some areas may get down to minus 20 (with wind chill)
Brrrrrrrrr
 
All schools are closed tomorrow....even Nick's!
