Two Hour School Delay

No, this is not a post I dug up from the archives.  This is today, April 16, 2007.  School is delayed due to inclement weather.

I heard rain all night, and when I awoke this morning it was silent, so I thought it had finally stopped.  Until I looked outside and saw SNOW.  In April.  So much for global warming, huh?  But I would never have imagined school would be delayed.  Thank goodness for those automated phone calls from the school district.

I gave up on spring long before I saw snow this morning, so at this point my only complaint is that we didn’t get enough to go sledding.  I mean, if it’s going to be 30 degrees and snow in April, let’s at least have some accumulation, people!  I’m looking for a snow day, something to make it worth my while, not this wimpy two-hour slush.  All that does is make things inconvenient and mucky.

Oh, well, I’ll take what I get, I suppose.  Not that I have a choice.  It does look like the end is in sight.  This weekend it is supposed to return to spring-like temperatures with sunshine.  But I’m not holding my breath.
