For the kids, anyway:
The Minneapolis and St. Paul public school districts said they are canceling classes and activities today because of extremely cold weather and snow accumulation.
The districts both said it could not guarantee that all buses would arrive on time and on all routes, given the state of the city’s streets in the wake of the weekend snowstorm. That, coupled with chilly weather, the districts decided to close.
I actually impulse-bought a snow-blower over the weekend. Not sure how I got by without one all these years.
