Cold Day Again?

Students do not have school today for the third time in three weeks.  In Minnesota, this is highly unusual.  Most of the time, we just add an extra layer and head on out.  As a teacher, I am enjoying a day in my classroom.....alone!  Its a time to get caught up, get organized, and plan for the future.  This type of time is a rare commodity in the education field, so I'm making the most of it.  Coffee, layers, and a pop of color will get me through the day!

I live in Minnesota, and like much the rest of the country, we are in the deep freeze.  With daytime high temperatures not reaching higher than -13, school was cancelled today and it will be again tomorrow.  Since this NEVER happens (and I mean NEVER), I am enjoying my extra time to the fullest.  I've been reading, watching movies, and working from my couch!  If you are dealing with frigid temps, stay warm; if you are enjoying sunshine and warm temps, please send them our way!
