I used to walk ten miles to school, also

snowboardNo school, just frolicking in
front yard.

What? A snow day? Those coddled kids, these days. Why, when I was a kid my school never, and I mean never, closed for snow. And I’m talking kindergarten through high school. Same goes for Ann. Never ever missed school because of a snow day. Don’t think I didn’t wake my kids up at 6:00 a.m. to remind them of that fact, just as I’ve reminded them every other snow day of their lives. (But I did learn recently that my hometown in south Alabama had a snow day this year, the first in decades. Ann’s snow day record in Florida is still intact.)
