Yep, don't laugh! We had a snow day today! No school!
Those of you who get any kind of snow regularly are probably laughing at my pictures. But here in East Tennessee, this amount of snow will call off school. When I first moved here from Missouri, I couldn't believe it, when they cancelled school, with what looked to me to be a mere dusting.
It's the mountains. Even a little bit of snow and slush can freeze on the mountain roads and cause slick spots. It's not safe to take the children on school buses on possibly slippery roads.
As a teacher, I appreciate this concern. Thank goodness for the mountains. I live in the valley, where it didn't amount to much, but I get a free day.
So, what did I do. Well, I baked, of course. Cookies and bread. And I took pictures of our snow.
The best part of this was that they decided last night. Usually I have to get up at 5:45 am, drag myself downstairs to the tv, and wait for the report. But they decided by 10:00pm! So, I was able to snuggle down into bed, turn off my morning alarm, and read a few extra chapters in my book. I love snow days!
