Day 9: Hang some Christmas lights and do what decorating you can do! 

Due to icy roads, Van Buren is closed for the day! This will be the third closing this year and the first for the month of December.

Van Buren probably is not the only empty school today; unusual weather conditions are being seen across the United States. California, Nevada, Alaska, New York, North Dakota, Philadelphia, Washington, Arizona, Delaware, Arkansas, Oregon, and even Texas are seeing very harsh winter weather conditions. While this is normal for some of these states, many of them are seeing snow for the first time in awhile. 

In other news, Google is recognizing today as the 107th birthday of Grace Hopper, known to some as "Amazing Grace", an American computer scientist and United States Navy Rear Admiral. Grace died in January of 1992 at age 86

Today in History: Due to much conflict in Somalia, US marines stormed the country on this day in 1992 with plans of restoring order.
