Snow Tip of the Day

If you enjoy random days off work where you get to sleep late, watch movies, and enjoy a non-work-filled day, become a teacher. However, you need to make sure you do not become a teacher in Fayette County. In fact, you should do your best to get a teaching job in the most rural and remote part of a northern state. The more rural your school district the more often you will miss school due to those beautiful country roads being covered in snow and ice and therefore impassable by those big yellow school buses. If you want to work on days when every one else is at home sleeping in and watching movies--then Fayette County is the place for you.

I think this tip also applies to higher ed, but works inversely. If you work for a college, you'd fare worse to teach in a more rural area, like, say, Asbury College, because all the profs, students, and staff live in about a 2-mile radius of campus. Even in the most horrendous blizzard conditions, 90% of the school's constituents could make it to work/school!

I think the trick here is to find a school district in a rural area that is large enough to contain a metro area as well, then make your home in the metro part. So when the cornfields are turned to frozen tundra and no one can get into the John Deere plant parking lot, you can still go to the mall. Ah, childhood memories. For the record, there is a magical place that panics and has snowdays if someone sees dandruff, and that magical place is Larue County, KY. Many a mornin' I had to drag myself out of bed for school while those kids slept. Not that I'm bitter.

Even UK gets out for snow once every 4 years or so. If you really feel like being tortured, you can do what Canterbury does. Live in a district like Scott Co. that gets out all the time, and work in Fayette.
Instead, do the reverse. Live in Fayette, and work in Scott. All the benifits of Lexington and of Scott county.

Lalah, you kind of follow Vander Molen's advice don't you?
