Embrace the snow day. The future is unknown. And possibly deadly.

Snow day! No school!

Many of my fellow teachers surprising despise snow days, preferring to begin summer vacation as early as possible. But I've always felt it fairly presumptuous to assume you will still be alive in June.

Perhaps not one but two near-death experiences and a gun to my head and the trigger pulled have altered my view on this subject.

Maybe even clouded it, but I don't think so. 

Take your days when you can get them. Don't assume anything.
