    Can't wait - we haven't had any school closures (besides teachers strike) since I put in the new VPN and can't wait to see how it handles it's self

    It doesn't need to be that deep in Kent to stuff the roads and railway. As a Yorkshire lass, I find it very frustrating.

    Surprisingly we appear to be missing the snow, this time around.

    Snow closures represent an opportunity for me.

    During all of the snow closures since I started working in school I have been able to get in.

    On those days [without students and staff around] I have been able to do so much more work that on other days.

    So yes deep joy.

    I am hoping Surrey clear the roads properly this time round.

    Should manage fine, most solutions can cope with the 3 keen teachers who will remote in, the rest will be building snowmen with their kids/watching daytime TV/whatever else teachers do

    The weatherman on the radio this morning said the snow would be very fine and powdery "rubbish for snowballs", so the teachers will have to come up with an alternative lesson plan. Snowmen won't work either!

    I don't think it's going to come to that fortunately.

    *sigh*
    We won't get any. The warning map on the weather forecast last night showed a big yellow patch moving across from West to East but if you looked carefully, it didn't quite make it to the bottom of the country -we are just up from and left a bit from the Isle of Wight

    I only had one snow day in all my years of being educated, when I was in Lower 6th/Year 12. As such, I did what all sensible sixth formers do in the event of a snow day and went down Wetherspoons. It was like walking into my school staff room.


    Couple of days of light covering here but not enough to cause any drama, not like last December. Actually quite relieved... snow makes the hour's journey even scarier, and if school closed and I stayed home I'd be expected to help pack everything up in preparation for the building work at home. No rest for the wicked!

    February, already, and we haven't had a Snow-Day yet.

    Think I'll write to my MP.

    Sucks that the snow is going to be afternoon/evening. Means I won't be able to get out in the morning and take some nice snowy scene pictures as it'll all be gone by then.
