Snow snarls return to school for many Minnesota students; families once again juggle e-learning
Minneapolis, St. Paul schools called for second day of learning from home on Thursday

The blast of winter that closed schools a day after many kids just returned from winter break has made for a topsy-turvy start to the year for parents, and in some parts of the Twin Cities area, a longing for the traditional snow day.
Minneapolis, St. Paul and Osseo were among the school districts that on Wednesday had students grabbing their devices at home to take part in e-learning.
Kelly Barnhill, an author who has taught in Minneapolis schools, wasn't thrilled: "Just give the kids a snow day, for christsake," she tweeted in exasperation. "Must we give them a world that doesn't suddenly, randomly and magically stop, every once in a while?"
