It's winter in the Capital Region and it's certain that we will get snow and sometimes a lot of it. No matter what job you do, chances are you don't get a snow day. But when the schools close, someone has to make that decision.  The Superintendent of the Ravena-Coeymans-Selkirk Central school district decided to announce that his district would be closed in a unique way. He went sledding and posted it on the school's Facebook page.

What a cool way to announce it. I remember growing up, we had to listen intently to the local radio station to hear our school mentioned. My sisters and I would be waiting for the "M's" to be announced. We went to Mechanicville.

It's funny how things come full circle because my oldest sister, Michele, was a Principal of a K - 12 in the North Country. Her first winter in the district, she had to make the call to declare a snow day. She was so excited that she called all of us to share how empowered she felt that she was the one that had to make that very important decision.

I have to admit, I thought that was a pretty amazing responsibility that she decided for the entire school. Is there something at your job that makes you feel this way?
