E-days. What are they, what happens, and how are they done? Some schools use e-days for snow, health scares, and other emergencies. Along comes a blizzard, the kids are home from school, which means parents must find a babysitter, get them there, and pay for the services.

In this case, I wanted less snow. Leo and I have been driving along highway 25 for only two hours, once we left colorado springs we noticed the first of the snowflakes fall about 30 minutes out.
