Dreaming of a White Thursday
I’m glad they called tonight, rather than doing the whole wait and see thing tomorrow. And I’m thinking tomorrow will be a snow day—as well as Friday. Cincinnati doesn’t do snow well. The predicted 3-6” will cause quite a tizzy.
What really amazes me is technology. Remember when we were kids and actually had to tune into a radio to find out if we had school? Nowadays there are tickers running at the bottom of every major local TV station and the school actually has an automated calling system to get the word out to students. Very high tech, which makes me feel slightly old—mostly because the only radios we have in use are in the cars!
I’m hoping for another couple of snow days… It almost feels like vacation around here. And who doesn't like vacation--even if it's snow covered?
8AM update: It's snowing! Schools are closed. Kids are still snuggled up in bed, dreaming of the homework they won't be doing tonight.

I hope you get your snow days.ReplyDelete
How come it never snows here on a Sunday night extending into Monday so transportation stops where I can have an "adult" snow day?
Have a good Thursday.
Dru, my husband wishes for more of those snow days too. Around here, we have to have a level 3 snow emergency (NO ONE on the roads) before he'll get work off. He's had one in the fifteen years we've lived in Cincinnati.ReplyDelete
Here's hoping for a lot of snow your way Sunday night!

As a kid, I always thought it would be great to have a snow day. But, living in the City of San Diego, it has never happened in my lifetime. Though, we do get snow occasionally in the local mountains, and the kids in the little towns there do get snow days a couple of times a year. They look like they are having a blast when they show them on the news (because this will be the lead story no the local news stations...snow! If it snows in the local mountains, people do not stay indoors at all....they get the sleds out because it might only happen once during the winter. Have a fun snow day with your kids!!!ReplyDelete
