I keep refreshing various official websites in a more or less desperate attempt to find out whether tomorrow will be a snow day and/or will it so through sheer power of mind. I feel like it would be justice on a personal level, since I left the house today at 7:20 foolishly thinking, If the buses are running, surely there'll be school! BREAKING NEWS: JUST BECAUSE THE BUSES ARE RUNNING DOES NOT NECESSARILY MEAN CLASSES WON'T BE CANCELED. Of course, I didn't realize that until AFTER a 45-minute bus ride had deposited me at my practicum school, which was dark and empty except for a few scattered teachers in the teachers lounge, where I got to hang out for the next, oh, TWO HOURS until I could take a bus back home.

Relatedly, it is COLD AS FUCK outside.

Please be a snow day tomorrow please be a snow day tomorrow please be a snow day tomorrow.

Actually, I am sort of enjoying this winter business, when I'm not arriving home with half my face and the front of my thighs frozen. I'd estimate we have about five inches of snow on the ground (where it hasn't piled up to 10+ around the curbs) which is, of course, not all that impressive compared to the SNOWPOCALYPSE I understand the American east coast is getting, but it's about as much as we ever get around these parts, not to mention the snow is covering a two-inch coat of solid ice most places. FUN FACT: city councils don't make it a point to stock large reserves of road salt OR sand in case of winter emergencies, since we NEVER GET THOSE AROUND HERE, RIGHT?

Okay, seriously, either the district school board's website crashed from all the traffic of people as anxious for news as me, or they took it offline to spite us. PLEASE GIVE US WORD, FOLKS. If I'm gonna have to get up at 6:15 after a more or less wasted school-free day, I'm gonna need some mental preparation to face that.

Anyway, where was I? Oh yes. We never get weather like this! PARTICULARLY we don't get weather like this for eight weeks straight, with only a few short interruptions. My poor dad spent like three hours this past weekend hacking ice off the sidewalk in front of our house.

WHY WON'T YOU MAKE IT A SNOW DAY, SCHOOL BOARD. THE ROADS CAN'T HAVE IMPROVED THAT MUCH! IT'S GOING TO FREEZE AGAIN TONIGHT! PLEASE DON'T MAKE ME WAKE UP AT ASS O'CLOCK IN THE MORNING TO CHECK AGAIN!

On a completely different note, I finally listened to the advice of the Internets At Large and watched Friday Night Lights. UGH, YOU GUYS. It is just as lovely and made me cry just about as often as I was led to believe. ♥ (I have yesterday's episode, but I couldn't bring myself to watch it yet. LITTLE MATT SARACEN. If I refuse to let the season end, he's not really gone, right?)
