Tuesday's winter storm is causing more stress for northern Illinois. Salt shortage and parents' sanity are both at stake.

Yup, Rockford Public School District 205, along with Belvidere and Freeport and Harlem, pulled the plug on school today due to snow and ice.

The Rockford Public School District, Belvidere School District and Freeport School District are among a number of local school districts closed Tuesday because of the snow and ice. All after-school activities have been canceled as well.

One Rockford mom said it best.

Yes, I am glad they're taking my children's safety into consideration. But if there's one more no-school day because of the weather I'm going to pull my hair out while quietly screaming into a pillow.

Stay strong, parents. We got this.
