I love that our school district allowed for a real snow day today–even for the students who learn remotely. When we received the alert of closed schools because of the fresh layer of ice outside, life felt a little normal. It felt like it did in past years–before everyone learned on Zoom, before nobody stopped gathering, and before we even owned face masks. Once, a long time ago, we all went to school and we bantered excitedly at dinner that we just might have a snow day the next day.
Today was that day, and it felt like old times.
