    Quit picking on Michael for his comments and read the story again. It states "It will be the sixth SNOW day for Fayette County students since last Monday." It doesn't say ICE day and it doesn't say anything about the power being out. Michael made a comment based on what the story stated, that's all! Get a life people!

    I did read your post I was agreeing with it

    Micheal, the biggest problem we faced was the ICE, not the snow. The snow just aggravated the problem. You didn't mention how much ice your brother had...did he go without power? One thing you cannot do is send kids to school with NO POWER. We don't live in the grand old days of one room school houses and walking 25 miles in the snow. This is 2009 not 1890!

    I grew up in Corning,New York and we NEVER got out for snow and it would snow up to 24 inches! However, when you have ice underneath the snow like we did it the past 2 weeks it is much safer to have the kids at home. My only problem is when I go to Fayette Mall on a day off and see tons of teenagers. If it's too dangerous to go to school it's too dangerous to be at the Mall!

    I dont' know how many or what kind of back country roads Michael's brother's child has to travel on a school bus, but my child's bus travels on a road that the slightest skid would land them in a creek on 1 side or a rock wall on the other, so there is no way I'd put my child on that bus whether they had school or not. If putting my child's safety first makes me a wimp, then I'm proud to be one. Too many buses were involved in accidents yesterday afternoon! Maybe just to me, but yes, my kid IS special and if the school didn't have the good sense to let out early due to weather and deteriorating road conditions, I'd go get her myself. The childrens' safety always has to be the number one priority.

    TO MICHAEL : FIRST OFF I'M HAPPY FOR YOUR BROTHER AND HIS CHILDREN. BEING THAT IT LOOKS LIKE OUR CHILDREN WILL BE GOING TO SCHOOL ALL SUMMER LONG. BUT IF YOUR CHILDREN SHOULD GET HURT ON A FAYETTE COUNTY SCHOOL BUS BECAUSE THE BUS WENT OFF OF THE ROAD BECAUSE OF ICE AND SNOW THEN YOU WOULD BE THE FIRST TO SUE THE SCHOOL SYSTEM. SO LET OUR CHILDREN STAY AT HOME AND BE SAFE THAN SORRY. AND IF YOU ARE WONTING FOR YOUR CHILDREN TO GO TO SCHOOL IN THIS MESS MAYBE YOU ARE A WIMP. TO KAYLA : MAYBE YOU ARE SPECIAL BABY GIRL

    Michael, Did you watch the news at all yesterday? Some buses in Central KY slid off the roads (a very scary incident in Jess Co), one or more buses were involved in an accident...when I picked my children up from the bus stop yesterday, kids were falling b/c it was sooo slippery on the sidewalks. I looked up your brother's school district website, and would you know these are same exact factors that would cause them to close their schools? Maybe you are just whining b/c you have children who are home today and you do not want to be inconvenienced, but I would rather have my children home safe with me. Oh, and I grew up in a state that receives way may snow than Parma, and I agreee that the conditions here in Lexington definitely warrant a school closing. I am not a wimp...I am just a parent who cares about my children's safety!
