We’ve had 5-6 snow days this year. I actually lost count and it’s been fabulous! Today’s weather forecast says we are in for another Nor’easter. There is a blizzard warning starting this morning and going into Wednesday. We are predicted to get 16-22 inches of snow. It even says we can get up to 3 inches of snow per hour. Wow!
Our school district tried everything in its power to NOT have a snow day. For the first time in 10 years they planned on having an early dismissal. We even had an impromptu staff meeting to go over logistics! The principal made it clear that we will still have school on Wednesday, just a 2 hour delay. Everyone nodded energetically.
Ha! I feel like shouting, “are you kidding?” Our first snow day in December was from a storm that left us with 4-5 inches. Another storm only gave us 8. Now we are faced with the biggest blizzard of the year we will somehow make it to school?! Ha!
Once we hit the switch of daylight savings time, Mainers are ready for summer. “Sorry blizzard, you won’t take another day of summer away.”
As for me, a Mainer-in-training, I’ll go wax my cross-country skis. I’ll enjoy it while it lasts.
