Boy: Do you know it is supposed to snow?
Me: Someone told me that earlier this afternoon, that we might get--
Boy: Could you check the weather report? What does it say? Are we getting snow?
Me: Just a sec, I'm bringing it up now. It says 70% chance of rain and snow, less than an inch of accumulation.
Boy: How much is an inch? Do you think I'll get a snow day?
Me: An inch is only like this much, dude. (I showed him with my fingers.) Maybe you'll get a delay if you are really lucky.
Boy: I hope I get a snow day!
Me: Well, you better go home and start doing the Snow Day Dance to try and make it happen! Good luck!
Boy: Maybe I'll see you tomorrow -- after it snows!
Me: I'll be here!
And the patrons in line behind him thought he was so cute to be that excited about possibly getting an inch of snow. I did my part to help out his cause by not getting out my snow shovel. Maybe that will make Mother Nature bring enough snow to at least get the kid a two-hour delay.
UPDATE: Think my friend will be going to school unless the weather gets a lot worse overnight. Below is a picture of what the snow has amounted to so far.
Sorry, little buddy! Better luck next time!
