Today is not a snow day.
But realizing that there was no option for a snow day was disappointing. People talk of Daylight Savings Time as getting a free hour, but a snow day is like getting a free day. A day where you can't go anywhere (because you probably can't drive since you are in school and also so much snow) so you are forced to hang out around home. Maybe you'll get some kids together and go sledding. Hopefully, no one will hit that tree and have to go to the hospital. I used to have a dog that would love to come sledding, but then she would get cold and start to walk back home. She would start back up the hill home. Stop, look at us as if to tell us she was going back. Then she would go up towards home a little more, turn around again. Sometimes we would have to tell her "It's OK, you can go home." Then she would trot back to the house to chew the ice balls off of her feet. What an awesome dog.
No snow day today. There is no snow to make it so. I am cool with that (Ha! See that pun.)
