Snow Day

I started my teaching career in Fayetteville, NC, where during my four years at Pine Forest Senior HS, there was only one measurable snowfall. If I recall correctly, we had a two-hour delay.

I then spent twenty years at Woodberry Forest School, where all the students and the vast majority of the teachers live on campus. Though there was one day (after a 29" snowfall) on which I was unable to drive to campus from the house across the river that WFS had rented for us, I either drove or walked to work every other time it snowed, and not one class was ever cancelled.

All of this is a shorthand way of pointing out that I am today, for the first time in my professional life, enjoying a real, honest-to-god Snow Day.
