i've had enough... i love the beauty of it, but really.. I'd rather enjoy the long summer days without kids pining to be OUT of school.....
So.. this week, we went to school late Monday because of cold. It was -5° F in the town I teach 2 hours after school was supposed to begin... brrrrrrr
Tuesday was a normal school day.
Wednesday we got out 2 hours early because of impending snow, which came to my home, but not to the town where I work. At my house 3".
Thursday, 2 hour delay. At home there was an additional 9.5", which meant my car didn't clear the snow in the unplowed alley. In the town I teach, maybe 3". So I left the house at 7:20 am, after shovelling, and by 8:10 was on the street in front of my house (just trying to get out of the alley).... got to work by 9:00 to start teaching at 9:30. It's usually a 35 minute commute.
Friday another normal day.
It's killing my instrumental lessons... kids forget their instruments, lessons are shorter than they should be. My 7th grade class has been shortchanged by about 30% of class time.
And my own children are crazy. My son informed me that he hasn't had a full week of school in 7 weeks. It's flurrying as I write this post.. and there's a storm predicted for mid-week.
I'd post pictures, but I've misplaced the card reader for the olympus... guess I should start searching for it!
Sorry, but I'm ready for spring.......
