#sol17 It's Coming!
At some point today, the snow will start. The winds will blow. The roads will be slippery. And we will go home.
The thing is, it probably won't start until later this afternoon. The warning now starts at 3:00 pm instead of noon. But that won't stop the inevitable question:
WHEN ARE WE GETTING OUT?
Phones will be held at their sides out of my sight, computers will be open to the weather page and to one of the TV stations that post school closings. The whining will start with the first early out, "Everyone's getting out but us!"
Oh! But wait! I won't be in the classroom today! I have a sub and a student teacher who will handle the whining and complaining!
I won't have to tell them to put their phones away and get back to work!
I won't constantly have to answer "the" question and listen to the whining!
I think I'll still post the note....
