Snow Day!#0
Posted: 1/15/04 at 9:40am
So I wake up this morning around six, but my mom excitedly yells to my bedroom that its a delayed opening! So I close my eyes and begin to get all comfy under the blankets for about another 2 hours. So I end up sleeping a little late- school opens at 9:30 on a snow day and rush to get ready for a beautiful high school day. So my mom shovels the driveway and brushes off the car and we are ready to go. I get to my school- not a single car there. Its likes like a deserted village. Me and mom laugh hysterically. We both had an inkling that school was closed due to about 5 kids we saw along our ride trecking through the snow with sleighs in their front yards.
The radio station must have messed things up because they said delayed opening. When I got home, I called the police and they announced schools were closed. My mom said she called them around 7:30- I normally start school at 7:20- and there was no message. What a great morning!
Well I plan on listening to show tunes all morning and may be later watch Freaky Friday with my mom. I am now addicted to the recording of PARADE. If I ever see auditions, I'm jumping on it. Such beautiful music.
Have a fun snow day everyone!

In spite of record low temperatures in the North East, snow and the risk of frost bite if your is exposed to the outside for more than 7 minutes, some of us still have to be at work and don't get a snow day. Enjoy it while you're in school kid, because there is very rarely a snow day once you start working. Unless you intend to work in a school.

Happy snow day to you too!!!!!!!!
It's supposed to get to -30 or -40 tonight (don't remember which). It's too cold, actually. I think the North East will freeze!
I have my books and my poetry to protect me...

All of the record lows were lost on me as I'm still on Russian weather. I stepped outside and....don't hate me for this....thought it was rather on the warm side.

Well, I go to school in midtown Manhattan lol so we very rarely get a snow day...though there are a lot of students absent today. I live on Staten Island and it took me a while to get here. I was very tempted to stay home today, but I have one class where we have to take an online quiz every weekend for the chapter we did that week and my book was in my locker.  re: Snow Day! It doesn't make sense to take the quiz if I can't study for it.  re: Snow Day!

Any-hoo, it has stopped snowing, the sun is shining, it's still freezing; but it's very pretty outside...and now I'm off to 2 hours of Algebra, unless I decide to just go home. hmmmm, yeah, I'm not gonna go to that class today. lol

Many schools in my area are off right now.
The wind chill is so bad that when I ran outside to let the dog out, (I was almost naked) I almost died.

See, the trick is to work for a school (like me). Now I get to enjoy snow days all over again.

No school for me tomorrow! re: re: re: re: re: re: re: re: re: re: re:  re: Snow Day! Chorus at 7?? That is too early to sing, lol. I really want to be in chorus at my school, but all the class consists of is drug dealers who want a free block. It is sad...I do start musical theatre class on Tuesday!
