It has become my morning ritual. The alarm gently nudges me from sleep at 5:30 am. I lean over and grab my cell phone to check for messages. There it is, again. Our schools are operating on a 2-hour delay due to weather.
Some people would roll over and go back to sleep. Not me. I grab my robe and head downstairs for coffee, pick up my laptop and get back into bed. I start making adjustments to today's schedule - now interrupted by the delay. Then I check emails and edit my morning message to the kids ("No art today but we still have Spanish this afternoon").
We've had too many of these days this year. Grey skies, freezing cold weather, snow piled so high it's almost comical, icy drives to school, early dismissals, and late starts.
16 days until spring. I wish you all sunny skies and warmer weather!
