Snow days

I keep a running list of "Thai snow days". It never snows here, but schools close for all kinds of other interesting reasons.

While teaching in Thailand I've had:
Flood days
Political unrest days
Coup days
Toxic garbage dump fire fume days
ASEAN conference days (all schools closed for a week to reduce traffic jams for the visiting leaders)
And now: Hand, Foot, and Mouth disease epidemic days.  

Which just goes to show, all those kids across the US who are praying for a snow day are thinking much too small!
