Top 8 Things teens do when it's a Snow Day!

OK~ My random thoughts and a recap of how teens cope with ,what I have observed, through these massive numbers of Snow Days we have had in North Iowa this year!    Here's my Top 8!

1)  Go to the Mall, Mom and Dad won't have a clue we left the house!  (I don't understand this one, it's a Snow Day, STAY HOME!  Living in the country, we are STUCK at home!)

2)  Play video games online from 10 a.m.-Midnight (There surely won't be school tomorrow, so it's OK to stay up until Midnight!)

3)  Eat!  (This doesn't work when there are no frozen pizzas in the freezer!)  Therefore, it can get ugly at this house.

4)  Keep those text messages a coming.......Never know when they might miss out on the "hot" news.

5)  Listen to the local radio station 24/7- to make sure they hear the announcement that school is delayed
     for 2 hours the next day.

6)  Head out to McDonald's (If you can get there safely)- Key word, safely.......

7)  They put off showering as long as possible....EWWWWWWW

8)  The best idea I've seen yet, My husband and Garrett built a snow fort, out in our yard, on one of these days!  

I'm trying hard to grasp the term "SNOW DAY"- this generally means the Department of Transportation is recommending no travel.  Therefore, doesn't it make sense to stay home?  Now, living in the country, we are forced to stay home, as we  don't see snow plows until the day after the storm.  Seems as though teens that live in town are all over the place, and I'm sure the roads aren't safe there either.  I'm just wondering if I'm being old fashioned and common sense has been tossed out the window in 2010? Hopefully, we are done with snow days for a while!  My 9th graders needs a regular routine, as I'm sure many teens do!  After All, It's All In a Mom' Day, Right?


  1. I think snow days would drive me nuts! Silly kids...yes they should be staying home. They really don't want to listen to anyone...LOL

    The picture is beautiful! I really wish we had some snow here (just a little bit).

    Thank you for reading my blog and for the sweet comments. I am going to try to come back to read yours - I like it!

    Have a great weekend!

  2. Thanks for sharing. I think a lot of these things children love to do even when it isn't a snow day :)

  3. I do remember those days, my son is grown up (33) so I miss all that now. Enjoy the times now because they soon will be grown up also.

  4. Isn't this waht teenagers try to do every day? They drive me nuts, too, especially the texting part!

  5. Love this. Thanks for sharing this slice of your (snowy) life!

  6. LOL! College kids do that too. We don't get snow days here, but on snowy days most nearby are inclined to stay INSIDE.


I always love feedback on my blog!
