Blustery Day

It is blustery and cold and it snowed last night. All very exciting for a temperate marine climate like ours. We've had more snow events this year than in the last ten that I've lived here. Two years ago there was one big snow event. The kids loved it. It hit the day after they returned from Christmas break and kept them out of school the entire rest of the week. I think we had 8" of snow or something. Hampton Roads was paralized. It just wasn't ready for it. They've gotten much better about the whole thing now.

In any event, today is a holiday for me, this was supposed to be a snow-make-up-day but school is closed because of the snow and dangerous roads. The irony is almost too perfect to contemplate. I'm sure the administration is steaming mad. I wouldn't give two cents for it at all if I didn't have 75% of my immediate family dependent on whether the schools were open or not. Two teenagers, and Kent teaches high school.

The alarm went clicked on at 5:30 this morning. Bomp Bomp Bomp, went Blue Man Group, and my first two thoughts were:
1. Gotta change that CD, it's been out wake-up music for six months.
2. Gee, wonder if NPS finally posted a "school closed" notice.

Didn't change the cd. NPS did post. Kent asks: Do you really want to get up now? I answer: sure, why not. I make a pot of coffee. I can get ahead in my homework. It's all Access2002 anyway, it's a no-brainer. If I don't get an A in this class I will realy have been lazy. More than lazy. But it's quiet, I can listen to streaming WRHV, one of the local NPR stations, and do homework.
