I’ve been teaching for three years now, and until today I hadn’t ever been gifted a snow day. Once, in Alaska, it snowed 30inches overnight and we still had school. For real. This morning when I saw that school was closed I was thankful. After spending a few years in Alaska I had forgotten how awful Midwestern winters can be. Juneau winters are great…temps between 20-30, occasional warm-ups with rain showers, and winter sports galore. Midwestern winters are evil…temps in the -20 range, drifting snow, and ice storms. I’ll take those dark SE Alaskan winters any day.
Today, I am hoping to spend the morning relaxing with a good book and then maybe I’ll go out snowshoeing this afternoon. I got some Redfeather Snowshoes for Christmas. Winter sports have always been something that I enjoy so I can’t wait to test them out. Cody got a pair too so I think we’ll make a family event out of it. Stay warm!
Your turn…Were there any snow days in your state this week?
