Snow Day No. 1
Did you know there’s such a thing as a Snow Day Calculator online that predicts the chance of school being cancelled? With snow in the forecast, the kids were checking this every hour yesterday hoping and praying for a snow day today. I admit that I was kind of looking forward to an unexpected day off of work myself. I even stopped at the grocery yesterday and picked up some Snow Day Snacks.
This morning, the text came announcing school was cancelled, so I rolled over and went back to sleep. When finally took a peek outside, I confess I was disappointed that there wasn’t as much snow as expected – certainly not enough to justify playing hooky from work.
So Snow Day No. 1 of the season was a bust for me. The sun setting over the Pleasant River in Addison was almost good enough to make the non-snow day worth while.
