Today I Love a Snow Drill - Slice of Life Tuesday January 12, 2016

Today I love a Snow Drill. 

This year's 8th grade has waited (semi)patiently for three years for the right weather and time and temperature to have their turn at this luxury. 7th grade had the fortune to get their turn today as well. (Please pray for at least one more snowy day for 6th grade!) 

Here's a recipe in case you want to try one at your place. Enjoy!

 Recipe for a Snow Drill
(serving sizes vary)

Prepare much the same as for a Fire Drill. 
Exit the building in a calm, silently efficient manner, 
bringing along one classroom full of 
open minded and appropriately bundled containers. 
In order to fully appreciate the wonder of falling snow, 
prepare containers with a liberal coating of:

“I’m really not at ALL sure you can handle this, 
but we’ll give it a try, 
just this once, 
and we'll see.”

Add Writer’s Notebooks and sharpened pencils, 
let stand for 5 to 10 minutes 
depending on speed and moisture level of falling snow, 
ambient temperature, 
and attention span of waiting containers.

Bring inside, simmer for 10-15 minutes 
and Do Not Disturb!
Shake lightly when done and enjoy.

Serves the multitudes!
