It’s the middle of February and much of the country had snow this winter, but we are still waiting for our ration here in South Bend. The east coast even had a blizzard in January, and Boston was supposed to get 8 more inches, according to the meteorologists. Currently my driveway has about 2 inches of white coating.
The weather forecasters are preparing TV viewers for 5-8 inches of snow in our area. Earlier today, it was snowing — big white flakes — for about an hour. This evening, it’s quiet again. I’m pretty sure unless the wind picks up or snow starts falling again soon that we WILL have school tomorrow. The media frenzy around snow days
must be big business. Personally, I’m ready for that early spring the groundhog predicted last week.
I’m planning to break out my favorite winter read aloud soon. When will it be a SNOW DAY? (Snow Day, by Lester Laminack, waits on the shelf, ready to go.)
