Snow Day

Don't those words just bring back memories? Remember waking up extra early to turn on the radio to find out if your town was going to be included in the cancelled list? Remember how the local am station was all staticky and you had to listen to it over and over again just to be sure? Remember how bothered you felt when the town next door was cancelled but your town wasn't? Why was it that your mom had to drag you out of bed on a school day, but on a snow day you were up bright and early in anticipation and then when school was cancelled you just couldn't go back to bed? Snow days are still exciting for me because I'm a teacher, but the snow day call isn't nearly as much fun as it used to be.
We knew today before we even left school, not a single flake has fallen. No reason to listen to the radio, no reason to watch the list scroll by on t.v. No need to cross my fingers. It's a done deal.
Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow!

I have none of these memories. School was never ever cancelled. One of the tragedies of education in California. LOL
