Snow Day

Thanks for this post from Sylvester Campbell

This morning, I woke up and there was a ton of snow outside. I have lived out West before and know how to deal with the snow, but there was so much this morning and no one was stirring. The roads hadn’t been scraped and everything looked like a winter wonderland. New England is usually really prepared for the snow, and I had heard something on the news about there being a storm. I just never expected to log onto wireless internet New Brunswick and visit my school’s website and see that classes had been cancelled. I haven’t seen a snow day since I was a kid. When I was a kid I used to hope and pray that school would be cancelled because of a snow storm. Now, as an adult and teacher, I usually assume that we are going to have classes. That means I still have to prepare lessons and grade papers as if we were going to have to go into work the next day. The snow day was actually really nice and relaxing. It was a good surprise. I will just have to be careful not to get my hopes up for another when the next storm rolls through New England.

Snow days were a highlight of my childhood. Then I grew up, moved to Florida, and they disappeared! ;)

I lived in Virgina for 10 years and the snow days were frequent because of icy roads and the many hills that buses found very hard to get up and down. In Utah, our snow days are treated like any other days. I miss the snow days too!
