Ice Ice Baby

It's a good thing school is closed today. I slept on my neck wrong and can't turn my head. That's a liability in a City School classroom.

Tomorrow and Friday are Professional Development days without students. I'm thinking this neck thing, and my sinus infection, are good reasons to use sick time, of which I have about 150 unused hours.

Five-day weekend! Woot.

If you saw the quality of winter driving here, you'd understand the need to shut these cities down. It's a sad state of affairs. I spent a January in Ann Arbor once on business and was thrilled to be around people who can handle snow without inordinate panic.

I learned to drive in Texas, so to be honest, I'm not that comfortable driving in snow either. I think it snowed one time when I was 19 or so, and I spent hours doing donuts in various parking lots.

That said, it isn't that difficult to drive in snow, just have to brake earlier than expected.
