Teachers' Dirty Little Secret
We like snow days just as much as students. We stare at the scrolling list at the bottom of the screen; if our school's not there at first, we keep watching. And when we do see it, we cheer.
A full 3-5" of snow is supposed to fall tomorrow morning across the Greater Cincinnati area. If you're from Michigan or northern Ohio, you would snicker at our reactions to snow here in southern Ohio. In addition to schools closing left and right (granted, most of these schools are rural -- city schools close far less frequently), people stock up on supplies like it's Y2k.
So I head to bed to read more of Barbara Kingsolver's "Lacuna" and dream of the pending snowpocolypse.
