Our school district closes school at the drop of a hat… or a snowflake. Last week we had a “rain day.” To be fair, the predictions were for serious snow, but it was just rain that sometimes got a bit flake-y, with zero accumulation. Now we actually do have a few inches, so natch, no school for two days.
I was teaching yesterday so Sarah was on duty. It was apparently a very crafty day. Among other things, the gals made these Snow Candles. You melt craft-store paraffin on the double boiler, then pour the wax in an indentation in the snow. Add some colored crayons, and a wick attached to a chopstick (I think). Anyway, they’re pretty cool!
