Snow day...but it's snot!
Snow day? S'no. A mere 2 hour delay. OK, I'll take it. Two extra hours without students, and shortened periods all day. So I dress (In my least fancy teaching outfit since I'll be trudging thru snow), get my coffee, and head out to brush of my car.
And fall on my ass. BOOM. Down. It doesn't hurt too bad, but DAMN is it cold!! Snow butt! And wet pants to boot! Pick myself up, shake myself out, try to get the snow out of my underwear, and get in the car.
HOLY HELL, what a drive! Sliding, spinning...it's like a ballet on 4 wheels! But a lot scarier, since, you know, there are other cars on the road. And they are spinning and sliding as well. Up the hill? Eh. Didn't happen so good. But down the hill? Now that's an adventure.
When I rule the world, and all are following the laws of elephant karma, there shall be a law:
There must. Must. MUST. be at least one snow day per school year. And we won't lose the Friday before Memorial Day to make up for it. In fact, we'll even have a Spring Day, where the weather is just to NICE to go to school to make up for the day we lost being trapped inside on a crummy weather day. Elephant karma demands it so.
