The principal sent out an email yesterday afternoon urging everyone to take work home because he thought we would be out the rest of the week. The weather reports were all warning about systems from Alaska, high winds, and 2-5 inches of snow. The kids were completely wired because they were SURE we would have at least one snow day. Now it seems that Mother Nature may have fooled everyone.
This morning when I got up it was 32 and it was snowing, but not enough to cancel school. In fact it was not even enough for a delayed start. The kids are feeling cruelly disappointed. Some are still holding out hope that there might be snow yet, but there are no guarantees. I can already tell that this is going to be one of those days when we check the temperature and look at the sky all day long. For my part, I would rather skip the snow days because if we have any more of them we'll be in school until July. Instead of snow, I am envisioning classrooms full of kids wilting from the summer heat.
