[thumbdown][thumbdown][thumbdown][angry][angry][crying][crying] Very upset about this. My kids were looking forward to the Youth for Tomorrow event. Very upset the Kid actives have not been reschedule but the auction was. I hope they reschedule it. It was a blast last year.


Why the thumbs down and negative comments? They can't control the weather. be patient for crying out loud.


An abundance of caution is better than a bucket of ignorance. Better to play it safe.


Yup,regarding the schools.. the morning might be ok but if you can not bring them back home safely in the afternoon then play it safe.


It is probably going to miss us.
