Just Another Day With Three Feet Of Snow

Three classes today, in two different locations; also had to come out to the school this morning to observe a teacher's class.

This during a snow storm that, if it happened in America, would be called "The Worst Blizzard in 200 Years" and be accompanied by complete closures of schools and workplaces, deaths and utility failures, National Guard tanks blocking off the streets, and large interactive displays on with headings like "KILLER SNOWSTORM AND POINTS OF GREATEST DESTRUCTION."

Here, they don't even send out snowplows. Just another day. . .

From what I heard on radio they sent out all the snowplows they had the day it started to snow. Probably it just wasn't enough to make any difference.

Anyway, I think a lot of snow is better than freezing wheather and streets covered with dirty ice. At least you can take a day off ;)
