1. This is the type of winter weather that I remember from my first winter in Maryland, and this is the type of weather I was hoping for when I fled the Michigan winters. I love snow days, but if it's not going to be a snow day, I'd rather it be temperate during the winter. I'd still like one more good snow week sometime this month, but then a February that is fairly warm, so that the baseball field is in good condition when the team starts on March 1.
2. I cannot believe what teachers, and the city schools, get away with this week and next week. Midterms are this week, meaning the kids leave at 10:50 (most of the them) or 12:50. Therefore, I've been leaving at 2pm and doing grading elsewhere. Next week is even more ridiculous. On Tuesday and Wednesday, there is no school. Well, officially there is school, but they're "makeup days" for exams, meaning there will be no attendance taken and no kids there. Yet, they count as our 180 days of instruction for the year. It's messed up, but actually it's a lot like college is, and gives us teachers a nice working break during the middle of January.
