For several years I was a high school teacher but I made the decision to leave the education field to pursue other career options. Since then I have had several people ask “do you miss teaching?” My response is always the same, “only on snow days!”
But today, I am at home, relaxing and enjoying a snow day! I actually went to work this morning for a couple of hours. It had just started snowing when I headed to work but the snow started coming down fast. Within 2 hours my co-worker and I decided it was best if we went on home, while we still could.
My drive home was horrible. Thankfully there was not a lot of traffic. In most places it was difficult to see the road and distinguish where the road ended and the ditch began.
But thankfully I made it home safe and sound. Now I’m in my sweat pants with a dog on each side of me, a cup of coffee, my laptop, and a pot of beans cooking on the stove. As I write this we have about 5 inches of snow and it’s still falling rapidly. The forecast predicts we will get 10-16 inches. For many of you that may be minor, but for us here in Southeastern Kentucky that’s a pretty major snowfall!
If you have snow in your area and have to get out on the road, please be safe! It’s cold and dangerous out there today.
