Snow Day!

This morning I woke up to find that it was snowing outside, and there was about an inch of snow on the ground. This is the most snow I've seen in ages.

Of course, I had a bit of a dillema. My students have a paper due today, but I really don't want anyone getting killed on the highway on my account, so I decided to cancel class today. I doubt anyone will complain.

So I get to enjoy a snow day at home today. But it isn't quite as fun as when I was a kid and school was cancelled. Now I'm the one who has to weigh all the factors and make the decision, and I'm the one who has to rearrange the schedule to keep the class caught up. Being a grownup sort of sucks sometimes, but I still like snow days.

Being grown is not all that fun. I'll take being 10 forever. I think for me, Heaven will be when I am 10 years old.

I almost burned a vacation day to stay w/ Maria and play. I have such fond memories of my brother and I playing in the snow with my Dad. He was a teacher, so he was out when we were out.

But I decided it wasn't enough snow. I hope we get at least one big one this year.

Me too! Just once in my life I'd love to have a foot of snow!
