When Cincinnati gets hit with the kind of “snow event” (a.k.a. snOMG, Snomaggedon, Snopocalypse, etc.) we’ve experienced in the last few days, I really wonder what other parents do with their kids on snowy days.
Whether you work out of the home or from home, or stay home with babies or school-aged kids, pretty much all parents are affected in some way when there’s a freakin’ blizzard outside! Schools are closed, activities are cancelled, work commutes are totally screwed up. Yikesers.
In our case, my husband and I have it relatively easy. I work from home, his work is flexible, and we have a very flexible babysitter. But even yesterday, we didn’t want to make the snow trek from Deer Park to Blue Ash, so we stayed home with two kids. (Needless to say? Not much work was accomplished.)
What do you do if you have to go to the office and your kids are home from school? Or even if you are a stay-at-home parent, how do you keep the kids from climbing the walls (and driving you crazy)?
I saw one local option that sounds promising: Snow Camp in Mason. (Check out this story on WCPO for more info.) Are there other camps that parents can send their kids to on snow days?
I’d love your ideas and thoughts on this — I know other Family Friendly Cincinnati readers would appreciate them, too.
