We are at 7 snow days since January. Today ⬆️ should have been 8. But….we put our dreams away!! 😭 Other parents are bemoaning the fact that we’ve already run our limit of catastrophe days and will probably need days added on to the schoolyear in June. Thus likely impacting the timing of their magical ‘memory making’ trip to Disney for ‘lil Boofie and Sally. My, my. Life *can* be tough! Though I admit, I may have a lower tolerance than normal for petty. And the fact that it’s precisely this sort of pressure on administration that puts everyone else at risk.
My kids were out yesterday for ice and they didn’t dare call us off again today. The inconvenience would be too much for the masses to bear. I was reassured though, this morning, when I saw just as many folks legitimately wondering why the hell we had school today! I still can’t figure it out but off we went with our sasquatch gear. Even if a little late.
And…U of M has only closed 3 times in the last literal 40 years. One of which was during the vortex at the end of January thanks to a petition of like twelve thousand people. While I was home anyway healing from having a broken molar yanked out and couldn’t truly enjoy the snow day! Otherwise I can expect to be layered up trekking through this garbage every weekday until well into March! It’s certain to let up by then. Right?
