unexpected blizzard leaves
yard frosted in whipped cream swirls
nature's ice cream cake


Yesterday was a really long day.  At 9:00 I still hadn't written my haiku (some things never change) and I jokingly wrote that I was hoping for a snow day. We had snow in the forecast, but definitely not a snow day worthy storm. This morning I got up and there was about an inch of snow on the ground. Two hours later, I was ready to leave for work, and logged onto my district's webpage, to check on something, only to discover that 8 inches of snow was in the forecast and we really WERE having a snow day. That hardly EVER happens in Denver, not even once a year. I spent the day responding to student work from my adult Academic Language class. I still have a little more to go, but am hoping to stay up long enough to finish tonight…

Love the haiku and these words "frosted in ice cream swirls." You spent the day responding to student work - reminds me of the year we drove down to school on a snow day to retrieve 48 shoe box biography projects so I could grade them. I had saved several and forced myself to pitch them last summer, but not before I took pics of all the fun parts.
