After school I watched as the school closings piled up. My school is county-wide so once the biggest districts close we tend to follow suit. By 5pm most districts had called a snow day for tomorrow.
I checked my phone. Ringer on? Yup. Do not disturb turned off? Yup. Still no call though!
Around 5:45 my phone buzzed and I quickly grabbed it. A text message, not a phone call. I had to laugh, though. The text was from NXLE, the emergency management service. NJ had declared a state of emergency.
State of emergency but still no call from my district! Realistically, I knew we were closing. But the call had to come, right?
Finally, a little before 7pm, the call finally came. Snow day tomorrow!
