Currently a very snowy Feb. 1st

It is February 1st and time to link up with Farley for her Currently Linky.

After last year's record sixteen snow days, we have only had one this year. Our luck will likely change for tomorrow, as it is snowing as I type. We have been north of most of the storm paths, but the bull's eye is right over Northwest Ohio and Southeast Michigan. Every hour it seems the local meteorologists have changed the forecast. They are now predicting 10 to 14 inches of snow by the time it ends tomorrow morning. Winds should bring drifts of three feet. 

My husband bought a new snow blower. Our old one is very picky, and doesn't like to start for me. He knows me well, and knows I will clean the drive before he gets home tomorrow. He didn't want me to have to shovel by hand. The new one has an electric start, and is lightweight. It should be much easier for Princess, Hubby, and me to use.

I have a long list of things I want to do if I have the day off. Today, I completed one, by making a delicious breakfast for us. I am making snacks for the game tonight as well.

I hope we get a snow day, or it will not be fun driving the country roads to get to school. The winds should drift over many. 

I have been making a few lessons for my kids. Although it isn't really "flipping" because many of my kids don't have computer access at home, it does allow me to add technology to my lessons. I was posting to my password protected website, but want it to be easier for kids to access. Videos are on my thinking and needing list. Only problem, I hate hearing myself on videos!

My Pageant title is because I love technology and often are sharing, and encouraging my colleagues to try new things. It often backfires, as then they want me to share the technology with them. That means less time for my kids to have it. Argh! 

How are you spending your first day of February? Link up!


  1. Sixteen snow days last year?!?!?! That is DEFINITELY a record! When did you make all the days up? I can't imagine they put them all at the end of the year- you would be in school until July. Eek! We are on our fourth snow day, and it looks like there will be another tomorrow.... :( I'm a new follower, I found you through Farley's link up. I always like to follow a fellow fifth grade teacher!

  2. I Hope you get your snow day! We have a PD Day, so no kids, which means we will be at school. (I hate having to make up the days!)

    Stay warm!

  3. Let's keep our fingers crossed for a snow day! Haven't tried Edmodo yet but maybe I should check it our for my 5th grade kiddos! I'm a tech person too in my building, and I spend A LOT of time helping others too... but it's a good thing :)
