Thanks Elleise. My son had spent the night at a friend's house then went to the mall, so I did have to pick him up around 2, fortunately there was enough traffic so the main roads were still passable. I did use it as a teaching moment about driving and running around in bad weather.
His school is closed tomorrow, but I'm thinking we will still have to work since they very seldom close the local government.
Stocking up sounds like an excellent idea. I remember the major storm a few years ago where everything was closed for days. We've had such mild winters especially the last two years, it's easy for us to get complacent down here. Many of us are in for a rude awakening with really bad weather. You've got a great plan we need to follow!
