My teachers’ chats were lively last night as we all stayed up past our bedtimes, waiting for our district to announce a school closure for today.
The snow hadn’t even started, and last week’s prediction of eight inches hadn’t amounted to nearly so much. March weather is unpredictable in Michigan. I thought schools might want to see actual snowflakes before closing.
But the announcements began about 7:30 pm, and with each closure, the chat got a little more… chatty.
Ours was one of the last districts to cave, and I had already fallen asleep. But I’m greeted this morning with the welcome news of an unexpected day off.
I have nothing in particular that I’m planning to do, which is the very best kind of snow day. Some leisurely slicing, commenting more than I usually manage during the week, maybe starting a new book, finishing a couple of letters. Holding cats for sure. I have a lap full right now, in fact.
