Yep, I live in the south. Yep, I have said it before. Have I told you how bizarre it can be to live here? Well, I will now.
I have lived here the majority of my life with some detours in California (several times) and Japan (twice). When it snows here, flurries send people over the edge. No one can drive (that's true any time of year, haha). Flurries send people to the grocery store causing otherwise sane people to stock their fridges with 20 days of food! Flurries make otherwise sane school officials cancel classes in fear that buses cannot drive on the snow (WHAT SNOW?). Oh as I child I loved it. As an employee of the school system, I LOVE IT! Most of the years I spent in school, snow days made children almost as happy at Santa, Easter Bunny, and the Tooth Fairy combined. But, especially in the last six years since I have been working for the school system, we just haven't been having any snow days. Barely any. Must be global warming (WHATEVER! - what nonsense).
Okay, I said all that to tell you this.............Tomorrow, schools are closed here in my little town. WHY, you ask? Because its cold. Yep, I said - BECAUSE IT'S COLD!! WHO DOES THAT? Okay, I am not complaining by any means. With all I have been through lately, I need the extra day off. But, school is closed tomorrow because its cold and the wind chill is going to be somewhere between 10-20 below zero. Ok, children in upstate New York, or Minnesota, Or North Dakota, or Wisconsin, or anywhere else that gets REAL snow, REAL cold temperatures, REAL winters....I don't think they get out for this stuff.
Okay, DISCLAIMER here:.....I realize that it will be cold in the morning. I realize we are not prepared here in the south for these kinds of temperatures. I know there are some parents who will send their babies out into the cold and have them stand there forever waiting on the buses......BUT REALLY? Closed due to the cold!
It's a first for me and I just wanted to share! Of course, staying on program is always hard for me on weekends and days off......but I will just have to suck it up and make it work. This is still mind blowing for me! LOL Too Bizarre!!
