The Stages of a (Maybe) Snow Day

Here are the stages we all go through when preparing for a snowstorm:

 

Aggressive hopefulness 

There’s supposed to be 12-18 inches of snow with 33 MPH winds. WE HAVE TO HAVE A SNOW DAY! WE HAVE TO! It will be physically impossible to walk outside without becoming an icicle.  

 

Anticipation 

Wow, I cannot wait to have a snow day! I can get ahead on my homework (or more likely – put it off) and relax! I’ll just stock up on food and get ready for a long day of staying bundled in my warm bed! 

 

Contemplation 

Will we really have a snow day? We should, right? It will literally be a blizzard. Should I do my homework? I should probably do it, but I probably won’t.  

 

Denial 

PRESIDENT BROWN HATES US. WE WON’T HAVE A SNOW DAY. I’LL JUST SKI TO CLASS, IT’S FINE. SWIRLING SNOW VORTEXES WON’T KEEP ME AWAY FROM MY EDUCATION. 

 

Reverse Fake Denial  

We won’t have a snow day, but what if we do? I can hope, right? If anyone asks, I don’t think we’re having a snow day, okay? I’ll be over here refreshing my email every five seconds until I know for sure.  

 

Stay warm everyone!
