Snow Day the Musical Video

The Reality of a Snow Day From a Parent's (Musical) Perspective

Are there any words in the English language more dreaded than "snow day"? We didn't think so. While a day of sitting around in our pajamas and sipping hot chocolate sound heavenly, reality usually involves bundling kids up in countless layers of clothes, so you can head to the biggest hill in the neighborhood for a morning of sledding, only for them to complain that they're cold the second you get there. Never mind the fact that Mom and Dad somehow have to juggle work on top of this.

While school administrators entertain us with snow-day announcements, parents have another take on the situation. Check out the Holderness family's (who you may remember from their hysterical Christmas jammies video) perspective on what a snow day really entails, and tell us: can you relate?

I loved your piece! Out here in Prescott, Az it is nearly 80 degrees! I know you guys can't stand it but I sure miss it, or maybe it's all the memories it brings back to this old man! Sincerely, Michael Phelan
