    Okay so not really but...

    We are having our 2nd snow day in a row tomorrow and don't get me wrong typically teachers love snow days. That is unless you have a plan to catch to MEXICO. With tomorrows snow day we will be at 4. Which takes my school schedule up to the Wednesday before we leave! We leave Monday morning at 6:00. I was hoping to have week before the wedding to finalize stuff.

    While everyone else is celebrating the snow I am cursing it!!

    Oh, well I can't fight mother nature. I guess I will be forced to go build a snowman or have a snowball fight tomorrow!!

      Oh wow! When I was in school we had like 10 snow days built into our school year. Made for some loooong school days. I hope it starts to warm up some and NO MORE SNOW!

        You can always get a sub for the last couple days if need be right?

          I'm also working in a school and the snow days are making me a little crazy...we don't leave until July so it's definitely not as nerve-wracking as your situation, but those last couple of weeks will be needed to finalize everything for me too...tomorrow will be our 3rd snow day and I'm sure there's more to come...

              I am a teacher here in Ontario and we have had 2 snow days so far this school year. Unlike you in the States (from what I have heard...) we don't have to make them up at the end of the year. Last year, I had 9 altogether!!!!! I am hoping for more for my sake, but not yours!! Save up your personal days!

                  Most teachers get 15 personal days in their contract. Do you all have that? You can take them any time you want so there's no reason you can't use them for the end of the year.

                    WOW!!! Teachers in your area get 15 personal days!! I get 2 and have already had to take them, one for a friends wedding and the other for my FI's grandmothers funeral (since we are not married, she was not 'family'). Getting a sub is not as easy as most think. My classroom would be wild if I had a sub the last couple of days.

                    We have already had 4 snow days. I can have to 2 more and will be okay. So I am hoping February and March are quiet months!!

                      I know I keep telling my daughter she's not going to be happy going to school this summer. So quite praying for snow days.
