Grateful for School Closure

Yesterday I woke up to the news that the school board had closed the schools due to the weather – we were in for a snow storm which would later turn onto an ice storm. The news was unexpected as the last two times in the past few weeks that we had had bad weather with slippery roads, the school board I worked for had kept their schools open even though other school boards had closed theirs. Looking outside as the snow fell to the ground and whitened our environment, I was glad I could stay inside. I had a moment’s thought to venture outside but the howling wind encouraged me to change my mind.Not only would I be battling against the wind, but the sidewalks would not be cleared of snow.

This week I am grateful for the school closure. Not only did I have the opportunity to relax and read at home, I also did not have to venture out into the snow storm, struggle against the wind, and make my way through fallen snow.

  1. I grew up in Seattle where snow was a once-a-year-for-two-days thing…now I live in LA where there isn’t snow, except once in a while far off in the mountains…and am grateful that three winter storms have filled all of our reservoirs and mountains with snow so we are no longer in a decades-long drought

  2. I am grateful that the snow is beautiful here near Woodstock NY, with a bit of ice on top, but it seemed safe enough for my spouse to get to work today after a couple of days off. In the old days we so seldom had the ice except maybe in the spring or autumn, but winter used to have the solid snow. That worked better! Oh, and I am grateful that the person above got some decent precipitation and no drought now!
