Snow day

When I was back teaching real school the snow day was one of the highlights of the year. I usually lived very close to the school where I taught so I didn’t really mind “near snow days” because driving was never a problem and actual snow days were like a free gift of time. It was cool.

Now that I teach college I never have that and, since so much of my work is outside the classroom anyway, even if I had a snow day it wouldn’t amount to much. Plus, I have a 45 minute drive every day and when it snows I don’t like it at all.

But today, a Sunday, is different. Church was cancelled as well as Church School – two things that Laura and I are in charge of so it really does come as a free day. I can take the day and shovel my driveway, do some writing, catch up on some resting because I have had a couple of intense weekends in a row and just chill out (literally) in general.

The bad news is that we got hammered by the “Blizzard of 2007” so I have a fair amount of digging out to do. Hopefully the roads will all be cleared by tomorrow morning when I begin the commute again.

The snow was only part of it - the ccccold was bone-chilling. I know others can top this but we had a high of 10F today and a high of 6F yesterday - that's cold.
