So, it’s February, we are halfway through the year, third term has started and we have not had one snow day. Not one! I don’t know about you, but I’m bummed. Not only am I annoyed because in years past we’ve had massive amounts of snow, but this is the one year I wouldn’t have to make up any snow days. It’s my senior year and whether we have no snow days or 20, my last day of school will be May 19 either way.
I don’t care how much you hate shoveling your driveway; EVERYONE loves a day off from school to play in the snow. There is nothing more satisfying than sleeping in, then getting wrapped up in a nice fuzzy blanket with a cup of hot chocolate and a going on a nice Netflix binge. If you’re lucky, maybe you can even get together with your buds and get snowed in before the roads are too rough to drive on.
Some may think the opposite though. I know lots of kids that hop right in their cars when they find out snow’s coming and head out to do donuts in as many parking lots as they can. Of course, if you do choose to spend your snow day in a car, ALWAYS make sure you buckle up because roads do tend to get really icy. This has been my first winter with my license and I will say it is not easy driving when the roads get icy.
Another fun way to spend a snow day is to hit the slopes. I never got the chance to learn how to ski or snowboard, but I wish I had when I was younger so that I could go now. I like going tubing and sledding though!
So if and when we FINALLY get a snow day this winter, make the best of it and be sure to enjoy it. Come the end of June, when seniors are long gone but the rest of HHS is facing makeup days, you’re going to be wishing you had.
