Tuesday Musing 13: the good, the bad, and the snowy

I saw a snowflake today. Did I mention I HAAAAAAAAATES snowflakes? But instantly all the kids were a-twitter with dreams of a Snow Day. And the students were pretty giddy, too.

So what about it? Are Snow Days a Good Thing? Or a they an evil plot by Mther Nature to force us to be in school in penance when the days are finally warm and beautiful?

I, too, HAAATES the snow. Our school has instituted a virtual snow day scheme, where we meet the kids online so that we don't get docked the day and have to make it up in the summer. I'm not wild about teaching online classes (especially with little-to-no warning) but I LURVES not having to go to school in July...

Well, it looks like a lot of the UK got a snow day today, as well as a lot of Europe.
