Wishlist // Snow Day


"We don't cancel when it snows."

If I had a dollar for every time I heard my boss say this today, I'd have enough to buy myself a one-way ticket to somewhere, anywhere but Denver -- where it's currently -7°F (-21° with wind chill) and covered in snow. After sliding left and right on roads that resembled ice rinks, getting stuck twice and my usual 10 minute commute to the office taking almost 40 minutes, I spent the morning crossing my fingers that my afternoon class would be canceled by the school, because that's the only way to get out of teaching when the weather sucks. Of course, that didn't happen, because Colorado (Jefferson County Schools, in particular) doesn't believe in snow days, so unless there's 3+ feet of snow on the ground and the buses can't run, fuck you, you're expected to show up.

The high for tomorrow is a measly 21° with a chance of even more snow, and I'm sitting here tonight dreading the hour-long (in good weather) drive to my Thursday afternoon school. I know I'm more likely to see hell itself freeze over than a cancellation tomorrow, but whatever, a gal can dream. And if I can't get my snow day, I can sure as hell put together a little wishlist of the things I'd like on hand in the glorious event that I ever get a cold and snowy work-free day all to myself.
