It’s more than just the title of this post. It’s pretty much all I have to say. When I got home, hubby said, “How was your day?”
Let me give you some background before I tell you how I answered him.
People, it was windy today. Cold, sunny, and windy. Maybe, just maybe, there was a wind chill factor. I don’t know. This is California and they never talk about the wind chill factor but I know all about it because I grew up in Oklahoma and Texas (y’all!).
There was one district near here that closed today because of The Wind. It wreaked havoc on electricity and there were outages and stuff like that. I guess I understand. I just don’t understand how I didn’t have a “It’s Too Windy to Conduct School Inside the Building Day”.
What I did have was . . . do you know where I’m going with this? Do you? Can you feel it?
I had INCLEMENT WEATHER. Because of The Wind. It was sunny with good air quality and we were INSIDE. Can someone please explain this to me? I texted a friend at another school in our district to see if this was district-wide or if it was just lucky old me. Guess what? Yep. Lucky old me.
I can’t figure out what might have happened to the kids if they played in The Wind. Let’s just suppose we closed the grass area in case our po-dunk trees decided to blow over on a child. Check. Closed. That leaves our gigantic football field of a blacktop. What would blow over? The four square court? The painted lines on the basketball courts? What? WHAT?!
I had a rough day.

So when hubby asked, “How was your day?” I think he may have been surprised by my response. I leave it up to your imagination.
I’m going to leave you with something positive.
I have teamed up with Farley and ten other bloggers for a HUGE giveaway that is uh-mazing. My actual day is tomorrow but I’ll be over on Farley’s blog so you’ll have to catch me over there. You should go check it out right now, though, to see what Farley is offering and what this whole thing is about. It’s awesome. I’m super excited about it and just typing this is making me feel a little bit better about my day. That’s what Farley does to me. 🙂
Before you go, please leave me a comment about what causes inclement weather where you live . . . and whether or not you had it today. Because of The Wind. Plus, you may remember that our blacktop also has its own weather forecast. So maybe this is just a situation at my school. I need to know. I’d rather not be alone in this. 🙂
