Snow Day

We have been warned about the Beast from the East, an extreme weather forecast with snow, freezing temperatures and all the chaos that can bring!

I received the first text just after 5:30am and got up and left for work at 6:40.

Roads were treacherous in places, the car drifted and flurries of snow were intermittent. By the time I reached school it had been closed to students.

Now we had to see what could be done to clear paths etc if we were to have a fighting chance of opening tomorrow.

More flurries, some quite intense, but the sun shone too.

The site staff cleared quite a bit and in a quiet workplace I was able to do prep for year end and budget planning.

Budget predictions this year are as bleak as the weather!

I made a dash for it when the sky was temporarily blue.

Home safe and sound a quick tidy up and a lasagne and apple pie were comfort foods made for dinner!

My sister in law sent photos of Bella enjoying her first snow experience; how delightful !

More snow has fallen and more is predicted tonight, and another decision will be required whether to open or close. The decision is never taken lightly: teaching and learning is time poor as it is, without closures.

I enjoy snow when it is fresh, but I hate to drive in it, so for me my perfect snow day is snuggled up at home in the warm, baking or cooking!

Fingers crossed for tomorrow and a thaw in the next few days 🤞🏻
