Baumhower: The Polar Vortex of 2014Written by Jeremy Baumhower | | email@example.com
For the first time in recent years, maybe decades, I think local government and schools got it right this week.
When is the last time the authorities went above and beyond to protect us citizens the way they have? They rightfully gave us a citywide timeout to make sure our own stupidity wouldn’t harm us. They have no idea what good they did by issuing a Level 3.
As much as it is a pain in the ass, I fully support our children being off this entire week. The schools have realized that, because of the Level 3 issued, they can petition the state over two of the days missed so in actuality this week would only cost them three days. Kind of genius. The schools had no choice to have class, so they won’t have those days used against their total.
