What is the cruelest trick that nature can play on an elementary school student?
Well, I guess it is not so good for middle school or high school students either.
A big storm that includes snow and ice.
One that drops its wintry load as predicted.
But does it on a SATURDAY or SUNDAY.
Poor weather that does NOT result in a school cancellation or delay.
By Monday morning, area roads are clear and school doors are wide open to welcome sleepy pupils.
This happened here last weekend--Saturday morning accumulation.
Of course, I get an earful from older boy about how unfair life is.
I respond with a typical show of my maturity. I throw several snowballs that strike his upper body.
Happy Saturday kiddo.
