Thursday night found northern Virginia under a blanket of snow. Sadly (?), we’re still on winter break. Such a waste of snow.
Look, I’m a teacher. I love my job, I love working and all, but I also love snow days. They are one of the perks of the job: when the weather outside is frightful, I get to sleep in while the rest of the schmucks telecommute or, hell, even actually drive into work through the snow. If we don’t get a snow day once in awhile, I feel like we’re really not getting all of our benefits.
All that being said: why the hell have we not had a single damn snow day yet? The dustings we’ve had this winter? Pathetic. While everyone around us has had inches upon inches of snow dumped upon them in some sorta winter wonderland (for example, my wife’s uncle just mentioned that where he is in Westchester County, NY, is getting between 16 and 22 inches of snow tonight, while we will get…um…maybe 1 to 3), we’ve been sitting here, waiting to see if we’ll get any sort of snow. Nothin’ worth writing home about so far, though.
So c’mon, weather: let’s get with the program, huh?
