It came as a surprise when snow storm Stella showed up this past week, as winter clearly already had its chance in
January and February. Most people were upset that in mid-March we would have to bear the shoveling and the tundra-like temperatures. Though, for students, the snow comes as a bonus. Students were able to have a mini vacation with two days off from school and a two-hour delay. Most people took advantage of the snow day; here are a few people who did just that.
Senior, Emily O’Hara felt she benefited from her days off.
“My two days were pretty relaxing. I mostly watched some movies and tv. I also worked on some homework and got organized with that,” said O’Hara.
With a foot of snow blocking students from getting out and about, students were stuck hibernating inside. It seemed like a trend was followed during the snow days with everyone starting and ending their day with Netflix and only leaving their warm heated bed a couple times a day for the necessities.
Senior Rebecca Woods followed this trend staying home and not worrying about anything.
“I pretty much watched Netflix all day, catching up on the episodes I have missed. I also was with my family and my dog, so it was a very restful two days,” said Woods
Students are not the only ones who get a chance to catch a break, teachers also enjoyed having the two days off to recoup.
English teacher Katharine Wilt took the time to be with her family and catch up on any unfinished work.
“I had a very motherly two snow days. I was with my kids in the snow and helped them with that. I also caught up on laundry, and I was able to grade some research papers…,” said Wilt.
With the snow nearly melted and the first day of spring upon us, students can hardly wait to be outside basking in the
70-degree weather once again.
