Now she resembles a female Calvin!!!
So now Snow Days are a Birth-right? Interesting concept.
You also have the right to murder your unborn childRight to free speech as long as you agree with meThe right to bear arms as long as you don’t live in California
Growing up in Southern California we never had snow days but we did have an earthquake day once though…
Gag her and shut her in the refrigerator for about 2 minutes. She’ll get more snow day then she desires, and hopefully a less whiny attitude.
Heh-heh. Evil, but it’s a comic so anything goes. ;-)
Her mother needs to tell her that the sooner she gets to work and completes her assignments, the sooner she can go outside to play.
Well, Snowflakes do believe everything they want is an inalienable right.
Maybe uh the snow will land so heavily on the er wifi aerial she won’t be able to access the Internet and there is her snow day.
Sunny SoCal here. I’ve heard of these things called “snow days” … they sound lovely, almost mythical. Maybe an earthquake would have closed schools here, but it never happened to me. However, I was able to take off a half day every month for my orthodontist appointment … oh joy.
She needs to grow up. And call in sick like adults do when they just don’t feel like going to work.
I read an interesting article about how e-learning has been a boon to a surprising number of black kids. It said they were thriving online because they did not get called names or get in trouble for the way their hair looks or in general have as much trouble. A friend confirmed that this was true of her child who, when offered the opportunity to go back or stay home chose the home option (and she is a VERY smart student but tired of constant harassment).
As a kid, when I had a snow day, I’d make a mint shoveling walks and driveways in our neighborhood. It was great (and highly profitable), if a little tiring…
Back in the day, schools never closed for the weather. I only had a two mile walk, uphill against the wind, so I never got a snow day; but I did get all the other winter joys she mentions.
and people think the younger generation is spoiled?
I used to love snow days; building snow forts and having neighborhood snow ball fights
I’m all for “snow days” but I lean a bit more towards the warm slippers, hot cocoa and a good book(Audible) side of the house. But, that not withstanding, GO Katy!
You’re not chained to that computer. Exercise your freewill go into the snow.
I grew up in Saskatchewan, Canada and never once had school canceled on account of snow. We had to go whether there was a blizzard or not. (As an adult, I’ve had work canceled ONCE due to snow.)
Psst, Katy, meltdowns disintegrate snow… ☺
Press the power button…….
…says the little girl with the daisy on her shirt.
In high school we had a snow day which started as an ice storm. There was a 2 inch layer of ice on the street, so we cleared off the snow and had a huge ice rink for the day. It was awesome.
Ha, when I homeschooled instead of snow days we would sometimes have “sunny days” if it was so nice out mom had to let us go play. Or maybe we just had worn her to the end of her rope. Either way it was fun.
I used to love cold, until I got old
Now the winter chill, I’ve had my fill
Lots of grumpy old people commenting on here. When I was in High School, in Michigan, we had a snow week. Most of the kids here get a snow day even if they are doing online schooling.
Be glad you’ve still got electricity, Katey Bug.
Growing up in California, I never even heard of “snow days” until I was an adult. I remember once, in all the years I went to school, we had some snow on the ground one morning. There was just enough to make some snowballs. Most of the kids were thrilled!
In Southern California there’s an Earthquake day and maybe a smoke day what is snow again?
I remember being young and playing in the snow. I remember experiencing the things she mentions in panels 2 and 3 (not to mention yesterday’s charming reference to “frozen snot”). But I also remember that those things were just a byproduct of playing outside in winter. I don’t recall actually wanting those things.
Wikipedia says that Katy is 6 which means that she has had very little experience with snow days – so what’s she going on about?
When I a kid I remember helping dad shovel snow – how much I actually helped – who knows. I also remember stacked snow that had been shoveled which was taller than me – though husband (who grew up in a different community near by) insists that is impossible. He was also shocked at the idea when we first married and had to shovel our car out in the apartment building parking lot of the idea of a girl shoveling snow – I explained – when all a dad has is girls – the girls shovel, not like his precious sister.
These days I do more of the shoveling than he does as it gets him too ill – and I have to shovel quickly as he does not want me to do “too much”. Maybe once a year he even lets me run the snow blower, when he has hit the point when he can no longer deal with it. Though our first day shoveling this year – I was the one who had to go back in the house for a bit as I could not feel my feet.
