What’s the weather forecast? Will there be school tomorrow? I hope she makes the right call (and early) this time I don’t want to be driving white-knuckled again.
These were the conversations being had by everyone at school today. Each time I heard the conversation I would reply “It’s so close to break, do we really need a day off now?” Of course, I’d get a weird look from that comment.
As I’m walking into my aunt and uncle’s for grilled cheese night at 5:50 I receive this tweet…
“Ugh!” I say unhappily. “I have no school tomorrow.”
Again, I receive a weird look from my aunt. “Um…what? Why are you not jumping for joy?”
Sure a day off unexpectedly to stay in your pajamas all day, relax or get some chores done around the house is always nice (even so close to a vacation). Even if it means adding a day on in June.
But part of the snow day excitement (at least for me) is the build up. Taking the chance staying up late. Waking up looking out the window at random hours of the night to see if the snow started. Listening for the snow plows. The phone call at 5:30am …what will it say?
Today though, the call came at 5:50pm…So early! One of the first districts around. No more building of excitement but rather a snow day to-do list.
