Kenosha or Narnia?


On Tuesday, January 23rd, KUSD announced that all of the schools in the district would be closed for the day due to the weather conditions. I, as a student in KUSD, was elated to hear this news at 6:04 am from my mom but also quite confused. After four more hours of sleeping in, I awoke at 10:36 am to start my day. I took a look out my front door to see what all the trouble was about, and I was amazed. The snow that had fallen in the night had covered all the trees lining my road, appearing as though I lived in a winter wonderland. However, there didn’t seem to be that much snow in total. The roads were clear and there was about five inches on the ground. I then proceeded to check the temperature on my phone around 2:30 pm as I was getting ready for work, and it read 45 degrees. I’m not complaining or anything, but the fact that KUSD closed school on day with five inches of snow and 40 degree weather is unheard of. However, I don’t mind. My favorite part of the day although, was my ride to work. I couldn’t tell if I was driving down 85th Street or through Narnia.
