Minnesota cold – the thermometer is stuck and will not rise above 10
Testing season for our ELL students – four tests for each student – o my gosh!
Piles of snow turned grey and black with the exhaust of cars
Restless and squirrelly students stuck inside building due to wind chills way below zero
Packed snow creating ice skids on sidewalks and street corners making walking scary
Seed catalogs stacking up on my desk with no time to review, enjoy or order
Knowing I should be eating fresh salads and veggies but carving rich, hot fatty foods to ward off the cold
Dry skin, achy joints and chapped lips – skin was not meant to be in cold for so many months
We know spring is out there some where but it feels a long ways away right now!
It is February in Minnesota!
