Day 15 (380) – January 15, 2019
One of the county’s middle schools is right across the street from where I teach. Typically, I plan to be out of there before their school day ends. That wasn’t the case today. This year I have become an avid believer in cutting back my after school hours. But every now and then I start something toward the end of the day that would bother the heck out of me if I left it as is, so I have to stay and finish. Nice thing was, it didn’t take that much longer, but long enough to leave at the same time as the school across the way dismissed. I caught this one because I liked how there are 3 pairs of kids trudging their way through a collection of a couple of inches of snow. Typically the journey would be a breeze to traverse, even though there are no sidewalks. How could there be in the middle of soccer fields (football pitches)? But with the snow still ankle deep, I hope they are wearing a good pair of warm socks.
