June 13 – 1: Playing (school-sanctioned) hookie

So there’s a weather alert┬áin my area for this afternoon and this evening that has had people all atwitter at school today. And apparently it’s severe enough that my school district has cancelled all activities for today, and also sent staff home early. (Students had a scheduled half-day of school, so we were told to leave once the students had left).

Leaving aside my thoughts about the ridiculousness of this “there might be a bad thunderstorm so we’d better play it safe” mentality, I am grateful to be getting a little extra free time this afternoon. No matter how much work may be looming over my head for the coming days.
