Snow Day

Folks in the north are experiencing above average amounts of snowfall. For this reason, many schools are closed.

Here, in Georgia where I live, the schools are also closed. But we have no snow.

"Mom," my son said when he came home yesterday. "Tomorrow is a snow day!"

I looked outside where the sun was shining brightly. I looked at the thermometer. 47 degrees Fahrenheit. "Are you sure about that?"

"Yeah! We're going to get snow!"

Fast forward to today. When we woke up, the thermometer read 43 degrees. Not cold enough to snow. Sure, it was raining, but this stuff wasn't going to freeze.

It's a little colder right now, but the sun is shining. For the life of me, I can't understand why they closed the schools. And the government offices. Ridiculous!

Let's hope it doesn't snow on Superbowl Sunday. Atlanta is hosting it. We're going to be in trouble if a few flakes fall. It'll be the first time ever that the Superbowl is cancelled!

    1. They rarely ever did in Cleveland, Ohio where I'm from. This is a very strange thing!

  2. I've heard of this snow day thing, but I've never experienced one. We don't even have it in our vocabulary. It doesn't snow here.

    1. I'm sure if a flake fell, you'd have a snow day. :)

  3. As someone who grew up without snow, it's strange to think of a school having a snow day when there's no chance of that happening. (Schools are more likely to take days off for too much heat here, haha.)

    1. You must live in Florida. When I lived there, I think it snowed a grand total of three times.

  4. They close schools here when the snow arrives but not before as our weather forecasters are forever getting it wrong. W do have snow forecast for tomorrow but will wait and see.

    1. That makes more sense. I guess they like to plan ahead here.

    1. Fortunately, we didn't have any, and the Superbowl went off without a hitch.

  6. haha sometimes they just get all scared and cancel and it is nice. Other times they don't and then it is crap. Can't win.

    1. They seem to err on the side of caution. The year we first moved here, it was a catastrophe when two inches of snow fell. It crippled the entire city.

  9. That's really odd. Here, they close schools if snow is even forecast sometimes. Today was a snow day here as well.It snowed a little during the night, but definitely not a big storm. We're expecting very cold air tonight so I think school might close because of it tomorrow.

  10. I hope your son enjoyed his day off. I'm guessing the kids attending the schools that were closed are fine with this. =)

  11. We have had a snow day today. It's grey and miserable and the cats and dogs have ruined the pristine layer of white stuff!

    1. Ewww. That's kind of ugly. Snow can be pretty when it's not dirty, though!

  14. That is weird, they would close and you have no snow?? Takes a lot of snow, for us to close down anything! LOL!

  15. We have snow days a lot here in CT (well regularly in the winter). Sometimes officials get caught up in the hype and schools are closed when the snow doesn't end up coming. Usually we have delays or early dismissals though- which keeps no snow snow days from happening often. :)
