Why I Love Snowpocalypse 2011

We got another snow day today!

We had an early release day on Monday (which was completely unnecessary) and then another one yesterday (which was very necessary).  It started snowing at about noon and didn’t stop until 4:30 or 5:00.  According to the Commercial Appeal, there had already been over 100 car accidents by 6:00 pm.  Thankfully they went ahead and made the call early that we wouldn’t be having school today.

And with that, I get a 5-day weekend.  I had already planned on taking Friday off to fly to Washington, D.C. for the Teach for America 20th Anniversary Summit and my flight Sunday doesn’t get in until 10:30 pm, so I decided to take Monday off as well.  Suh-weet!  I’m really looking forward to the opportunity to get out of Memphis for a few days and mingle with a bunch of really awesome people.  Pretty much anyone who’s anyone in education these days will be at the Summit and I get to be there and hear them speak!

So my plans for today?  Laundry and packing, napping and reading, and hopefully picking up my car from the shop (that’s another story for another day).

    Say hi to Wendy Kopp for me. And if you run into Dana, give her a hug.
