It wasn't that I would have had to take a sick day if I did not go in. I always felt fortunate to have those to use.
It wouldn't have been for my own kids. I let them stay home, attendance be damned, when the weather was that bad.
It was the arrogance that pissed me off. De Blasio and Farina could have said NYC schools stayed open because they felt that was best. Period. They didn't have to talk about how wonderful the city was running when, in reality, it wasn't. Trains and buses were running late and canceled in many places. Cars were skidding and getting stuck. Sidewalks were slippery. It was not a day to be out. They heard the same weather forecast we all did and chose to ignore it. They should have said they were in charge, they made a decision and everyone had to accept. I wouldn't have liked the words but they would have been better than the lines they fed us.
