This morning began with the anticipation of a snow day. It had the familiar feel of elementary school, flipping on the TV and waiting as the schools scroll through the alphabet under a local newscaster. Only after hearing classes were cancelled did I realize that today is Wednesday. I don't have class on Wednesdays, just work. The realization left me wondering if city employees get snow days.
It turns out we don't.
Nope, I showered and trudged off to work a mile through the snow while my housemates curled up with coffee on the couch. Okay, true I'm just an intern and I only work until 2:30 and it's not as if I froze to death on my walk, but It's just not fair. All my friends got to stay home. I know I'm being a little melodramatic but who wouldn't be upset to find out snow days are a thing of the past?
