Divine Intervention?

The Mrs. was scheduled to give her students their first exam in statistics this morning, but classes were canceled due to snow.

Should I assume that many of the students participated in an all-night vigil in hopes that this would happen?

I don't remember catching any similar breaks...

Yes, but I am sure you remember all the times that you bet on the weather going the other way! I can only imagine that there were more than a few students who slept the night away, woke up to the snow, and gave themselves a lucky pat on the back! Grace abounds....EFH

Kids have it too easy today. Back in my day I'd just have to walk the 10 miles in that snow barefoot and still take the test.

Yes, yes, they prayed for snow. They stayed up late on purpose because they knew they wouldn't have to get up!!! (I, too, remember school never being cancelled and walking in 2 foot high snow to get to school, complete with boots, "leggings", winter coat, gloves and hats. Today you are lucky to get your kid to throw on a sweatshirt when they go out because they never have to walk anywhere in the cold!!!

Snow days. The best. Definite reason to party - even at this age.

Dan said...

I am sure there was great juju being practiced all night. The real question is did any of the students calculate probabilities of a snow day based on the historical weather statistics? And did they get the right answer?

Back in those mean old 1950's and 1960's...school was like time itself:
It paused for NO one...

You studied for the test, and if school was closed the day OF the test, you KNEW it would STILL be given the day you came back...no ifs, ands, or buts.

Then again, the STUDENTS as well as the parents held themselves a lot more personally accountable and responbile for their own success OR failure (back then).

(what a novel idea to impliment in today's world)

Love the comments...LOL!

I well remember hoping and praying for snow around Christmas exam time - and seeing as I did my undergrad in Atlantic Canada, I quite often got my wish. Ah. Those good old university days of yester-year (yester-decade?).

I have never had a snow day in my life...that's what I get for living in coastal California I guess?!
