Praying for a snow day

5 Feb

The message came just after 5 this morning.

The paltry inch of snow makes my inner Canadian roar with laughter at our unpreparedness. My inner Beaverton School District teacher is praying for a full on cancellation.

And so, here I sit, showered and drinking coffee, checking again and again to see if there has been an update.

The wondering starts spinning in my head.

  • If Portland Public has closed, why haven’t we?
  • What is the latest time they’d change the late start to full closure?
  • An email form one of our administrators has our modified schedule for the day. What is the best way to modify the day I have planned?
  • Last night, I brought in the manual to my new car to learn how to activate the seat warmers. I also wanted to read up on driving AWD and how to activate the X-mode for severe driving conditions. I am a little worried about icy roads, as the last third of my drive to work is uphill.

As time passes, my hopes dash and I get on with the routine of my morning muttering a little prayer under my breath that we will get a full snow day.

    Darn! No snow day for you! I hope you didn’t have any issues on the drive uphill or downhill. At the end of the day, it will be nice to know you don’t have a day to make up.

    Oh gosh- what a let down. A little snow but not enough…

    I’m sorry you didn’t get that day off that you had hoped for.

    Winter is not over. I am sure more snow is forthcoming. Here’s hoping you get that snow day and word comes the night before so you don’t have to get up in the morning.

    As you know, I still have to go to work on snow days! But I’m still always watching and waiting to find out if the busses will be cancelled. I need to know what my day will be like! Hope you got the seat warmers figured out. They make all the difference.

    I agree a fullsnow day off is better. Delays just upset all the planning! Hope you get the new car figured out!

    This is a job for commiseration. And also, sounds like, X-mode!
