Not heard anything with regards to Ripon, they are always late releasing the news - on the last day of last term it snowed and they didn't announce it until after 8 am, dd catches the bus at 7.45 am, so she got all the way to school and had to turn round and come back!!

It's forecast to snow around 3 pm tomorrow so I'm a bit worried about the journey home for her, it being so far. My fall back plan now is to tell her to go back to school if the buses aren't running (the public buses were cancelled today for a while it was so bad), as they have the boarding houses there and she will at least be safe and warm.

I do so hope they just shut the schools down for the rest of the week (I'm a real scaredy cat when it comes to snow and ice). I can't even get my car out the driveway it's so bad and as for getting it out the back lane, forget it! ........................ but the main road's clear so that's ok then.

Well, the school's open and she's gone in (bless them at school, I 'phoned at 7.35 am and they were there answering calls!! - VERY impressed!) but people are ringing in to the local radio station to say it's snowing heavily again.

One VERY panicky mum here :cry:

Hope DD has arrived home safely Snowy. I've just recovered my youngest two from Primary. It was the only school for miles around that managed to be open today. :evil:

Aww thanks Mitty.

School closed early at 3.15 and she's now on the bus home - should be here in about 15 minutes :D :D :D :D and the snow's held off!! (although after several more big bouts of snow earlier today I was almost having palpitations!!).

We've had several flurries but they are all short lived. Try not to fret I'm sure the bus is close.
