I looked at the photos on the Internet. So interesting. I was thinking the same things as Brad, trying to figure out why they couldn't outrun it; but the article I read said that the flow was 35 mph!

I love the Scholastic book orders. Nowadays, there is a minimum order, so if your students don't order enough, you end up spending more money than you want. No, I hadn't heard that one before. At least you had your day mapped out for you!

The book orders from Scholastic Books had come in (we used to get a flyer that we could order books from), so the teacher handed out the books to those who had ordered them. Then the principal came in and asked which of us had walked to school. We raised our hands, and the principal said "Have a nice weekend! Bye!" Outside, they were sending the buses back as they arrived. So I had a snow day with a bunch of brand new books to enjoy!



-10 points to me for lack of observation skills ...

Went to my financial planner and got the requisite signature about the rollover. Then I went to the district office to turn in my resignation letter. Only 12 more school days for me to work!!!
