We got something over a foot of snow last night and it’s still coming down steady.

My alarm went off at 6 am simultaneously with the phone ringing. The phone was the school’s robo-caller announcing that school is closed and tonight’s winter concert is rescheduled for tomorrow night.

I thought about going back to bed, but the kid, who normally requires being dragged out of bed for school, had heard the phone ring and had gotten up. Also, the three cats and the dog did not understand that snow days are for sleeping in and wanted fed at their usual breakfast time.

Now that I’m up, the kid has gone back to bed.

Go figure.
