Snow Day!

March 2, 2009 pm31 5:14 pm

First in, what, 8 years? We had 9/12. And we had a flood day, was that 2002? And two days between 1997 and 2000. So this (and you can correct my counting) would be the fifth canceled day of my career.

not so bad, is it?

I woke up an hour and a half ago, peeked out the window (just in case) and saw clear streets. Didn’t even think to check. Put on coffee, and saw I had a comment on my status message on Facebook (I went to bed last night with the status message “I wouldn’t mind a day off”). Someone kindly told me my wish was granted.

Coffee was on, too late. So I just spent an hour answering e-mails and taking this lovely photo. I’m actually dressed and ready to run over to school, maybe get hot chocolate for the unfortunate kids who checked the roads and not the news before setting off this morning.

Oh, and I should confess, having the day off? Personally, I love it. As a teacher with 3 preps, having to rework them all for a short week (with the marking period still ending a week from Friday), it’s a pain.

    I’ll rework everything. No problem.

    My college class is supposed to have an exam tonight. I guess they will survive an extra day of studying.

    Enjoy your day off.

    I don’t remember the Flood Day but I do remember we had a snow day Winter of ’01. I don’t think there were anymore after that… Remember, Bloomberg caught all kinds of flack for closing school pre-emptively? So, my math and memory say this is the first snow day in 7 years, but my math and memory are rarely reliable!

      There was a Monday and a Tuesday. Istr he kept them open on Monday, which was a mess, and then overreacted and closed them Tuesday, which was totally unnecessary. Jerk.

    I take it back. Rabi just reminded me that there was a snow day in 2004, during Regents Week. Between you and Rabi, I stand corrected!
