On Wednesday morning, after days of snowbound isolation, local governments are sending out a fleet of rescue vehicles for Boston parents — yellow school buses.
The big snowfall was exciting at first. But the fervor died a couple days ago. And by Tuesday, after five days at home with their children, burning through patience and vacation days, many parents were more than ready for the return to school, if only for a few days. On Friday, the board games will come out again with the start of February vacation.
