<wally byrne/principal, boscobel middle school/high school> (((04;49;39;20 "we had impassable roads as of 9 o'clock... 9:30 last night.
The county had gotten ahold of us and said there were some mudslide issues.
There was a culvert that was out in an area... and our buses would have a hard time getting through that area even if they worked through the night."
04;49;58;18))) he said he hasn't seen school canceled from flooding before.
<wally byrne/principal, boscobel middle school/high school> (((04;50;35;20 ,"that was odd because it was that time of the year and not snowfall so that was unique but unfortunate.
We would rather keep people safe.

<roger halverson> (((04;56;30;28 "i had water damage done two years ago behind the house two years ago but nothing this severe."
