Day 125 of 365: Snow Cat!
We had quite the snowfall in Kingswinford last night -- so much that schools here and in Dudley were closed for the day. The commute to school this morning was spent listening for the closings on the radio to see if the school I'm assigned to was in the list. No such luck. They did, however, point out in the briefing this morning that there may be a blanket closure for all of Birmingham tomorrow. Then about half-eight tonight I get a phone call from the agency that schools are closed. We just checked BRMB 96.4 as well, and they have announced blanket closures for Birmingham, Dudley, and Solihull already. The funny thing is...the snow has now stopped and they're calling for rain. Figures!
As you can see from the photo...Myst's nosy kitty self got to explore a bit this afternoon as well.
After two and a half years in a long-distance relationship, I packed my life of 29 years into 21 boxes and moved to England to marry and be with my husband, Matt. Now I'm reveling in the youth of my 30s in Great Britain, supply-teaching in primary schools near Birmingham and enjoying newlywed life, being a mommy, and all the surprises they bring!
