I can't believe that I forgot one of my favorite things about snow!
Seriously, snow days are even better now that I am a teacher. You know how great snow days were as a kid? Multiply that by about 5 and you have how awesome it is to have one as a teacher!
Last night I saw on the news that they were closing a highway due to weather related accidents. I know that I should be worried about the people on the roads, and I am. But, I'm also excited at the possibility that maybe, just maybe (and believe me that last night there was really not much snow so it was about a 1 in a million chance) there with be a snow day the next day. I even put my cell phone next to my bed and double checked that the volume was on before I went to bed. Of course, it wasn't a snow day. There was barely any snow on my windshield in the morning. But nevertheless, there was a moment of hope.
There are some rules about snow days though:
1. It will not be a snow day if you think it might be a snow day.
2. It will not be a snow day if you are not totally prepared for the next day.
3. It will not be a snow day if you have recess duty, morning duty, bus duty or car duty.
4. It will not be a snow day if you stay up late thinking that it will be a snow day and you can sleep in.
5. It will not be a snow day even if you stay in bed 20 minutes longer than normal thinking that the phone will ring any moment and can you go back to sleep.
Don't worry- you'll hear about it if I have snow day. I'll type to you in my PJs with a smile on my face. :)
and we meet
