Waiting for Winter

Waiting for winter

For those of us down deep in the South, we’re still sitting on nice Autumn-y temperatures….cool and crisp during the day and night (don’t be a hater).  We don’t get snow here but maybe once every 5 years or so, so it’s a big deal when we do.  No school, people take off work (heaven knows we don’t know how to drive in snow)…everybody stands outside and just looks up in wonder and hopes it sticks to the ground for more than 10 minutes.  The last time it snowed we were already in school, it was around 9am, the kid sitting closest to the window looked out and couldn’t figure out what was happening.  It took him a good 2 or 3 minutes to guess that that was snow falling.  We all gathered around the little window and watched as the speed and depth increased and realized it wasn’t going away in the next few minutes, it was actually accumulating on the ground.  I went across the hall to my friends classroom (she doesn’t have a window) and shared the news.  Being the responsible, professional grownups that we are, we quickly made the executive decision to go outside and play in the soccer field behind our building.  We made snowballs, organized a snowball fight, and watched while 60 or teenagers attempted to make snowmen (really short snowmen) and snow angels.  Everyone had their phone out taking pictures.  Other classes started to come outside and play and we wistfully thought that this is what our Norman Rockwell painting would look like.  We barely heard our principal making announcements over the speakers to keep the kids inside for safety reasons (In our defense, he didn’t sound sincere, he sounded like he had to say that to cover himself).  We yelled to everyone to be careful and pretended we didn’t hear.  We were outside for an hour when the bell to change classes rang…the snowfall had slowed considerably by then and everyone was excitedly showing off their pictures, not even remotely aware that they were soaked.  It was, arguably, the best day of the year (next to the last day of school that is) and I still have graduates that I’ll see around and they will bring that day up.  So yeah, the leaves have fallen off the trees, it’s a brisk 68 degrees out right now (20°C for everybody else in the world) and we’re all peering out of our windows…looking skyward…waiting for winter ❤
