You know me. My day is incomplete without The Tennessean (and coffee...that's a given).  Once again, they've answered the question that everyone has had on their minds since this crazy winter started!!  What happens if we burn through all of our snow days!

That depends upon which district your child is in.

 

Again, THANK YOU Tennessean for the answers and for Ms. Cheap and Cathi Aycock (aka Fashion Diva) too!!  Love those gals.
