Good Day Sunshine

Spring has done gone and sprung itself all over the place. As the weather goes from gloomy to gleaming it’s hard if not impossible (and perhaps, morally wrong) to be cooped up in a institution of learning, or for that matter, working.

Up in Washington state where sunshine is as rare as a Tunisian Ice Cave, the principal of Bellingham Christian School made a decidedly good decision and called a “sun day”.

“In Washington we often have soggy winters and spring. We all love the sun up here. Sometimes we cancel school due to snow. So one day I thought, if we don’t have any snow days why not do that for good weather?”

NPR picked up the story and gave it the “30 second lighthearted news piece” treatment which you’ll find here.
