I was really hoping for no snow accumulation this Winter; especially during the work, school week. I was looking forward to getting out of school on May 16, but now that is not going to happen; it could be a day or two later now. A day or two will not hurt.
It is best when that snow fall starts accumulating that the buses stay off the road. It is safer for the students on the bus, the drivers, and for the schools. I was thankful that they called me plenty early this morning to inform me by their automated School Reach system. It is a system which notifies all the drivers, students and teachers at the same time; or near it anyway. I received my call at 4:35 a.m. I usually leave around 5:25 when I am riding with another driver into the bus garage.
This is our first measurable snowfall for 2012 Winter. It is the first school day cancelled due to weather; and I hope the last. But who knows about tomorrow.
The snow sure is pretty, covering all the ugly of the yard, and putting some niceties to the forms of trees. I still do not like Winter, cold or snow, but I can enjoy it; and be thankful and appreciative of it.
Just sit back, if you can, stay warm and praise the Lord for His beauty.
