    Snow please!

    Could just do with a day off tomorrow (Thursday) with the college shut due to snow.

    I could:

    • catch up on sleep
    • have a day off to make up for the fact that I came in to work every day last week despite feeling like death
    • watch crap daytime tv
    • eat rubbish food
    • finish a website I should have finished last week
    • cook an evening meal for my wife except she won't be there as she'll be working as usual


    We're south Warwickshire so we might just have heavy rain

    Its rumoured that were getting heavy snow here in the North East tomorrow. I hope if its coming it comes before I actually leave the house rather then get to school and have to come back once the decision is made that the school is closed.

    I think we had a Carol service planned in a local church tomorrow night which has now been cancelled, whats the betting we don't get any snow at all!

    We have been off for 2 days although I did make my way to work today to get some stuff to work on. Took me ages and had to walk the last bit. Severe weather warning tonight so probably off tommorow as well.....

    School closed tomorrow in advance due to the nasty weather warnings which I personally think is a good thing planning ahead and preventing any risk of bus crashes, children slipping and breaking bones, staff crashing cars etc etc Very commendable of the head, and all well timed with the external access to webmail coming online today and the Term Server also coming online heh, still in testing though so just us on it, if we were to work at home.

    I would love some snow. I am so tired and I could do with a day off. Still we been forcast rain.

    What would be a nightmare though is if it snows at school and I have to drive home.

    Yeah, that's what I'm dreading - especially as I live 20 miles away from the school.

    My head asked if I would put a message on the website in the morning if the school is closed.. I asked him to send me a text message but he insisted on phoning as he is useless with technology.
