June 28, 2018
I remember when I was a kid in the ‘90s I’d listen to the radio to find out whether school was closed. Seems weird thinking back on it, but this was before school districts had websites, and the TV was on the other end of the house, so I’d need to get up to check that way. There was probably a number you could call, but I don’t think anyone in my house knew it.
Of course it was rare that a closure would be decided upon the night before, so I’d have to set my alarm and wake up at the same time regardless; unlike Nancy though if the news was good I’d usually go back to sleep.
One early morning one of my parents (I can’t recall, but I have an inkling it was my mom) got the news school was closed and shut off my alarm before it could go off. This kind gesture gave me a panic attack however when I finally did wake up and thought I’d missed the school bus.
