Snow Day

Posted by Seeking Solace |

I woke up this morning only to find that the power was out. My watch said 7 AM. How am I supposed to get ready to teach an 8 AM class in the dark??? Plus, there is some serious weather related heinousness going on in Lake Effect Snow Central.

"That's just great." I thought to myself. "Oh how I wish.."

"No..it couldn't happen"

I have a battery operated radio that I keep in the home office. I turn on the local news-talk station and listen to the cancellation list.

I waited in sheer anticipation. "Oh please...just this once."

Then it happened.

Seeking Solace's College is closed!

YIPPIE!!!!!!!

Oh, and the power came back on at 9 AM. Bonus!!!!

Awesome! We had a wind chill of -30 today and classes were not canceled! So glad my only reason for going in - a meeting - was canceled.

I think it's cruel to expect students to walk to classes when being outside for ten minutes can cause frostbite.

Now THAT is a good day! Keep warm and dry and safe. I wonder if there's a chance of closure tomorrow, too. Sounds messy there.

It was a great day. Husband worked from home too. The Boy loved having Mommy and Daddy home with him.
