The snow storm made for a topsy-turvy week for many Minnesota students who had been scheduled to return to class after winter break.

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?"
