Don't think I'm the only one. All teachers nationwide have endearing feelings towards their local weatherperson. Anyone who mumbles those magic words is deserving of our educational love. Besides the fact that we are actually expecting some accumulation, I just so happen to live in a county that calls school off for a heavy frost - so the odds of a snow day are actually pretty good. KEEP YOUR FINGERS CROSSED. And it probably helps that I made my kindergartners perform a Snow Dance today that involved lots of uncoordinated motions and pretend snowball fights, but it looks like it might have worked. Don't underestimate the power of 5-year-olds.
Anyway, a light sprinkling of the white stuff is accumulating on top of my car and the roofs throughout the neighborhood. I am so one of those people who will rush out to the store to stock up on snow day necessities like Diet Coke. I totally have my priorities straight, you know that. My current stock is, well, nonexistent, so this is certainly a problem. I will venture to the store as soon as Baby B wakes up from his nap. I guarantee you that 75% of our city will be at Kroger pulling sleds, rock salt, and milk off the shelves. We don't take the threat of snow lightly. No siree.
