Still winter!

Tuesday, March 19, 2013

Seems like I made a mistake with my last blog --- it's still hibernation time. Another no school day today. LOTS of snow.

And I decided that I need to write myself this reminder so I don't call myself wimpy when the heat of summer keeps me in the house too.

This the first time I can ever remember the school system trying to figure out where to get extra days for school. The latest option was Good Friday or a Saturday to be named later.

The cold does not stop me. I'm an expert at clothes layers after a lifetime of New England winters.

Ice in its many forms --- slush, refrozen puddles of black ice, leftovers the plow didn't push aside, etc., etc. --- ice stops me. So does a huge pile of snow on every street corner. And narrowed streets and roads. I vaguely remember the placement of sidewalks! Cars don't expect pedestrians out enjoying the fresh air this time of year!

I guess I bought into the lifestyle thing. An hour in the basement on my treadmill holds no appeal. I want to go outside. I want to breath the air, and watch the clouds, and wave at neighbors, and pat the dogs that know me on the head.

    Wow, this is late in the year for a snow day!

We had hurricane days in St Thomas, and one year went until early July to make up the time!

    Snow here too..though I don't think there is talk of where to make up any school days (which is a good thing as I am a teacher, and I don't mind going an extra day in June..). I hate ice staying in, did my run on the treadmill.

    Snow here too, so you're not alone. Did fortunately get out to walk Mr. Spot the Wonder Dog and ran into a lot of his canine friends and their humans. Nice!
