Two of my friends, one a teacher, sent this to me recently, and BOY, did it work! Our school district is holding school today, busses on hard-surfaced roads only, but I can't get to the plowed out hard surface road.
I'm ON THE LIST to be plowed out by the one guy still standing with his toy (actually a huge farm tractor with blade and scoop) who plows people out. Yesterday, mid-afternoon, his wife called to say the tractor was on the blink. He called me about 7 this morning to say he got it up and running last night, and would be by this morning to do mine. So, hale and hearty, I have a sub. Strange feeling.
Oh Lord, let it snow.
Let it drift and let it blow.
In the morning, no real fuss,
Just enough to stop the bus.
Enough to make the county say:
"There will be no school today."
Let the radio report: "Snow's deep!"
And I'll roll over for more sleep.
Then later on, say maybe ten,
I'll turn the radio on again.
Just in time to hear them say:
"It's strange, the snow has gone away."
And then I'll know, You made it stop.
So I can go to the mall and shop.
Please Lord, just hear my teacher's plea,
And make it snow for the kids and me.
