On a recent Tuesday afternoon, one of the teachers at my grandson’s school shared some rather peculiar insight. Wear your PJs inside out and backwards, flush an ice cube down the toilet, and sleep with a spoon under your pillow and a “snow day” will result.
As an impressionable 9-year-old he did just that.
Early Wednesday morning rain, then snow and blowing winds ensued. Area schools were closed.
Expect more snow days before this winter is over.
