Snow Day

It’s going to be a snow day around here with at least four to six inches of fresh powder.

Snow days remind me of the seventh grade when we had so many snow days in the winter, the school board said that if we had one more snow day, they would have to add another week to the end of the school year. But that final snow day to push us over the edge never came.

The funny thing about seventh grade was that I got the mumps that year. Not just once, but a freakishly unprecedented two times. I was in school so few days – I couldn’t tell you much about anything that year.

I arrived the last week to take finals barley passing any of them. For the most part, I only came to the last week so my yearbook wouldn’t be empty that year.

Next week I’ll be on the road and write if anything happens. Pictures will be posted when they can or when I come home.


  1. I'm waiting for us to have a snow day tomorrow. Although, it takes far less here in PA for one than it does in Michigan (my sis is near K-zoo).

    Enjoy the snow and stop sending it my way!

  2. We had an "ice" day here in Austin. What a joke. I grew up in Michigan- they would have laughed at the city for shutting down like this.

  3. In the past, we used to be able to jump out of the bedroom windows into the snow below. The village would frequently 'get snowed in'. Not had snow like that for a few years now, must be global warming

    Safe journeys :)

  4. Snow days are excellent! I'm still in my PJs instead of surrounded by children riddled with adolescent hormones. Too bad they'll have more homework for it later. :)

  5. Snow days sound like fun.
    I grew up in the Central Valley of California -- we had foggy days. The fog would be SO thick that the school busses couldn't safely get us to school so we got to sleep in until it cleared up.

    Man, I miss foggy day schedule.

  6. I forgot to wish you happy travels.

    Happy travels!

  7. Just wanted to let you know my husband's now a big fan of yours. I told him about your post in which you described sending some unpleasant chick's show materials to the wrong city on purpose

    and he thought it was so funny he had to read it for himself. So I sent him the link, which he has then passed on to everyone in his office. Granted, it's a tiny office. But But in that tiny office, you're their hero.

  8. I got the mumps in college. They sucked.
