I resent getting out my winter coat for September 8th

It was over 90 degrees today. Tomorrow, the high is 37 and there are 3-6 inches of snow expected

With our covid rules I now have to spend 30 minutes sitting outside every morning checking kids in/doing screenings. I had to pack my snow boots, winter coat, hat, and gloves for tomorrow. Due to the student start date being pushed back, it's only the 4th day of school. I hate snow and we never get any this early! More 2020 nonsense!

It's not just going to melt and go away right away either (typical for fall/spring here). More snow on Wednesday and Thursday is cold as well.

I went to college in the western U.S. from Florida. I didn't have even a jacket. Woke up to snow the second week of classes. I'm sorry you'll have to sit outside and screen students, but at least you'll be prepared!

The weather forecast for the next couple of days almost seems like a joke! It is crazy!

I am not giving up my sandals, though. I will be walking in whatever weather in my capris and flipflops.

That is nuts. I hope you will be able to sit inside to check students in.

You have crazy winter weather. Colorado goes from heat to snow to heat. California is hot, hot, hot.

But, thereís no global warming.............

Luckily, I don't have to screen kids outside, but I did dig out my winter boots today and my leggings/sweater to wear!

I swam in the pool today! Crazy to think I'll be wearing snow boots tomorrow and very likely be scraping snow off of my car!

Something to talk about if nothing else!

Just saw on our district web page that they are monitoring the "storm". Wouldn't it be funny if we got a snow day this early?!?!?

Colorado!

Eliza, we've been wondering if this whole remote learning thing would be the end of snow days. Our kids are taking their devices and basic supplies home every night in case they suddenly have to "roll remote" (for quarantines or whatnot). So they'd have all of their stuff ready, and teachers are being told to be ready to "roll remote" at any moment. So I'm thinking a snow day won't be any different- they'll just say it's a remote learning day.

I don't think anyone thought they'd have to break that news this early though...from what I'm seeing it looks like the snow will be too spread out throughout the day/night to consider a snow day. But I'll be interested to see if anyone brings up snow day plans. For many years we never really got snow days anyway. The last couple of years we've had several. There is speculation that all of the transplant families (who expect snow days for the snow we get) and social media have made a difference.

Don't remember washing my puffy coat in the spring and was just thinking I should put that on my yo do list.

Also in CO.

Our temps go back up again though.

Friday we had specials move in to our classes because of the heat. Today would have been because of air quality. Tomorrow will be because of snow...it is strange times!

I hope we are outside again by Thursday!

I thought CA used to get big swings, but never to this extent.

It is definitely hotter than it used to be. As a kid my momís house didnít have great windows and there was only a few days a year you really needed A/C. My mom had a window unit and if it got too hot, we would just watch tv in her room. Most nights, you would just open the windows. Frequently, you still have a nice breeze in the evening, but thanks to the air quality you have to keep everything shut up.

The ads on the side of the webpage have already switched to heavy coats, scarves, and winter boots! Too funny!

We had temps of 92 yesterday and this morning it’s raining and in the low 40’s. Thank goodness it’s not snowing. I love sleeping when it’s colder but I don’t want to see summer end. The thought of no more patio visits is so sad. This COVID isolation I has muted so much enjoyment. Oh well, carry on.

We are off today and tomorrow due to heat. We donít have air conditioning and it is supposed to be in the 90ís With masks, it is just too much.

Hopefully we get some cool weather but you can keep your cold weather

Some districts in Wisconsin had started having remote learning days rather than snow days before the pandemic. I think now that schools have been more or less forced to figure out how to deliver remote learning, it will be a pretty natural next step.

As of now it's still raining instead of snowing. I hope it doesn't snow too much over night!

I was trying to avoid turning my heat on and thought it might be okay, you know considering it was 90+ yesterday. I turned on the AC mid day and just used a fan, so it was 80 in my house yesterday. Today when I got home from work it was 60 and I caved and turned it on . At least it came on right away- it's so old I was a little nervous!
