Sit Right There

Headed to San Antonio tomorrow with Lee to give a talk on podcasting, critical reading and writing, and creating participatory cultures. I'm excited to go to Texas because it sucks here in Minneapolis.

We're having a blizzard today. On April 19th. I basically stared in dismay out the window for hours. I did that intermittently, actually, because otherwise I was working on our International Reading Association presentation. Also teaching kids about some stuff.

Later, I went out to the parking lot and found a big mound of snow behind my car. It was plowed there. "Do you think you can get out?" Jon the Wood Studio teacher asked. "Oh, probably," I said, waving noncommittally and feeling reasonable faith in the miniature van. "I'll wait just in case," Jon said.

So, I rammed the snowbank hard and on the second try, I got out.

Texas, here I come.

Hooray for Texas! I never thought I'd say that.

Enjoy! I'm headed to Alabama next week. It's not as exciting as IRA and San Antonio but warm weather is warm weather.
