This second winter storm in less than a week is a double whammy for parents, as many simply can't afford to take off work again.
That leaves day care centers like Cheerful Home in Quincy making sure they have enough food and reassigning staff to handle all the kids that won't be going to school on snow days.
Outreach Coordinator Kelly Diaz says staff safety is a point of concern, "If the weather starts getting bad we would send our out of town staff home first and send the rest of the staff home as the staffing ratio allows."
Quincy parent Trent Vogel says he relies on daycare for his kids when it snows, "More than likely one of us would have to call in and keep our kids."
Diaz says they only closes if most of the town shuts down and a majority of the parents aren't working.
