Snow day

The snow day is a venerable Canadian tradition dating back to the first time horses and sleighs, the all-terrain vehicles of their day, were replaced by automobiles and paved roadways requiring ploughing. It is a movable feast day of the highest order, one or more of which occurs virtually every winter in this country. Last year we had one very near the end of the second semester -- in April, as a matter of fact. This year it falls much earlier in the season -- today. Classes at Redeemer and most other educational institutions are cancelled, leaving us with plenty of time to try to free our driveways from the encroaching polar ice caps.
