We're in the midst of our first blizzard of the 2008-2009 winter season. Hooray! Okay, not really.
Instead of calling off school like every other single town around us did (and I'm not kidding when I say that), our town decided the state-wide blizzard warning issued by the weather service wasn't important enough to keep us all from learning. At least not until fifth period when things got really ugly.
So, at 1:30, those students and teachers that live out of town were allowed to leave. (Town folk had to stay so that it counts as a full day for our school - have you ever heard of anything so ridiculous?). Now, safely at home, I have an important decision to make. I have some correcting I could get done, lesson plans I could write, or I could cuddle under a blanket and read my book. Hmmm . . .
