The Definition of "Cause and Effect"

The definition of cause and effect....

Alberquando's school schedule (8th grade) for the past 2 weeks and his probable school schedule for the coming week....

MONDAY JANUARY 25- Early release due to exams, but he only had one exam. He goes to school from 10:45AM - 1:15PM. Total time at school is 2 hrs and 30 min.

TUESDAY JANUARY 26- Early release due to exams. School from 8:30AM - 1:15PM. Total = 4 hrs & 45 min.

WEDNESDAY JANUARY 27- Again early release due to exams. Again he only has one exam and AGAIN total time at school is 2 hrs and 30 min.

THURSDAY JANUARY 28- Early release due to exams. HOWEVER, Alberquando has NO exams scheduled. Total time at school = ZERO.

FRIDAY JANUARY 29- No School. Teacher Workshop. Beginning of Record Snowstorm.

MONDAY FEBRUARY 1- Snow Day. No School.

TUESDAY FEBRUARY 2- Snow Day. No School.

WEDNESDAY FEBRUARY 3- Snow Day. No School.

THURSDAY FEBRUARY 4- 2 Hour Delay from previous snowstorm. School from 10:30AM-3:30PM. Total school time = 5 hours.

FRIDAY FEBRUARY 5- BEGINNING of ANOTHER Virginia record snowstorm. Snow Day. No School.

(we got about 8 inches of snow for this storm, then 4 hours of a hard freezing rain, and THEN about 6-8 MORE inches of snow this weekend).

MONDAY FEBRUARY 8- Snow Day. No School.

TUESDAY FEBRUARY 9----Don't know yet but it is doubtful that the roads will be cleared yet. Probable Snow Day-No School.

Tuesday Weather Forecast- 75% chance of freezing rain, sleet and snow.
Tuesday Night Weather Forecast-75% chance of freezing rain, sleet and snow.
Wednesday Weather Forecast-50% chance of snow.

Children returning to school at all this week forecast-DOUBTFUL!

You're so precious. But I know you'll have a similar fit when he grows up and moves out. Keep praying for that global warming thingy.

Maybe....but tomorrows forecast is now up to an 80% chance of snow, sleet and ice pellets....I've never heard them call for "ice pellets".

Maybe they'll go in with a 2 hour delay and then when it starts sleeting, they'll have an early release.

Wow I can't believe all that snow. I would look like that picture too. :)

Thank goodness for global warming huh? LOL!

How are they going to get to school in all that snow and ice. Your grandparents might have been able to teach them but can you?? LOL!

The good thing about Virginia. IT CAN BE 8 degrees and snowing all day long on one day, and the next day might be 45 degrees and sunny.

In other words, if you don't like the weather in Virginia, just wait 15

I can't believe the exams are cause for half day.
today in Indiana, they canceled school because of the forecast snow and it didn't come. Somebody shoot the weatherman.
