While students are jumping up and down at the announcement of a snow day, the day off of school leaves parents scrambling to figure out what to do with them. Most grown-ups don’t have the luxury of a snow day. I know that when that cancellation call comes at 5:10 a.m., my jealousy sets in and I’m left wondering why I didn’t become a perpetual student.

Sometimes, the anticipation of a snow event gives parents time to plan ahead. Yet, here on the south shores of Lake Michigan, weather has a mind of its own and that early morning call-off leaves parents with their first worry of the day – what to do with the children.
