How to spend a snow day

Sledding has been a staple of snow days for decades. Nothing can compare to the rush of sledding down the hill for the first time.

Sledding has been a staple of snow days for decades. Nothing can compare to the rush of sledding down the hill for the first time.

It’s late in the night and you’re dreading the thought of school in the morning; however, the forecast shows snow all night. You look outside your window to see if the snow has started falling and see that the first flurries have started to come down. Suddenly, you have a rush of excitement as there may end up being a snow day. You start constantly refreshing the MCPS website to see if they cancel school with your heart racing in anticipation until you finally receive the text that school is canceled.

”There is nothing better than the anticipation of school getting canceled and the excitement you feel when it does,” senior Henry Kumkumian said.

After anticipating a long dreaded school day, there is no better feeling than waking up in the morning after sleeping in and looking out the window to see a mountain of snow outside bringing with it a day filled with an endless amount of fun activities.

“When I first wake up and see it’s a snow day I immediately get my snow gear on and have a snowball fight with my brother and neighbors, which I always end up winning,” senior Sean Cokery said.

Another amazing thing about snow days is sledding along with the classics such as building a snowman and snow forts. Students can’t really go wrong with these activities in pursuit of the perfect snow day.

”Snow days are one of my favorite days of the year. Growing up my favorite thing to do was to go sledding at the stone ridge school. It was the best time to go sledding all day. After a long day of sledding where you would be covered in snow it was the best feeling to have a nice cup of hot chocolate to warm me up that my mom would make for me,” senior Chris Tamero said.

Because of Covid, snow days are becoming more scarce and a thing of the past as schools across the country are implementing zoom days instead of a full day. Students need to appreciate these special days as they might be coming to an end. From the epic snowball fights to sledding or just the relaxation of having a day off school. Nothing will ever compare having fun in the snow; the winter season would not truly be complete without snow days.
