Bring on the Sunshine…Please!

sunshine

This morning, we were awakened once again, to the sound of the phone.  I made a quick wish, “delayed, delayed not closed please…”

We had even more snow overnight, so it was the now familiar voice of our superintendent announcing our fate…we are already giving back one day of our Spring Break vacation, a week that we have already planned on being away.  I didn’t want to give up another!

Fortunately the call was for a two hour delayed opening.  That gave us time to shovel – AGAIN and still have enough time to get ready for work with time to spare.  I am lucky to have a three minute commute to work but not everyone I work with is that fortunate.  The roads are a mess due to a shortage of salt so it was a good call giving everyone time to get to school safely.

By the time we got out of school, the temperature had risen to 40 degrees!  Who would have thought that I, (the girl who despises the cold) would cheer for the day that we reached temperatures of FORTY!?!!?  The sun was shining and some of the snow had even begun to melt.  With snow piled up in mounds over four feet high, it is going to take quite some time to get rid of it all.  My hope now, is that it doesn’t melt too quickly because I don’t know if my basement will be able to handle it!

The weather forecasters are predicting that temperatures may hit 50 degrees by Friday!  With warmer weather approaching and the days staying lighter longer, it actually gives me a glimmer of hope that Spring really is only 29 days away!

    I am not a fan of cold weather myself, but was glad to go out for a jog on a sunny 40-degree day after being cooped up inside so much this winter! Best of luck with the basement staying dry.

    Quite rainy today, but snow is melting. It is supposed to get really cold next week but if we could get rid of a lot of the snow these next few days that will be a plus! Hope you get out for more jogs over the next few days!!
