Nostradamus was right!

I've had a lot of free time on my hands, what with school being canceled for the past 3 days and already canceled for tomorrow. Let me tell you, this is UNPRECEDENTED for my district, which usually doesn't even close down for ONE day, regardless of the weather.

This unusual and scary activity got me thinking about apocalyptic prophesies, and I did a little research on the Mayans and Nostradamus. I gave up on the Mayans after awhile, because they seemed mostly obsessed with 2012. But I found some very interesting things while looking through Nostradamus's quattrains.

Here's one you may have never heard:

Round the day of the rodent,
the South will freeze;
Snake bearer returns,
while the children go untaught.

I KNOW!!! When I first read that, I immediately associated it with the 4 day inclement weather break we have been granted here in Dallas!

So I kept reading, to see what else the Big N had gotten correct.

Look at this one:

In the metal behemoth,
Steel and Cheese collide;
The man with two faces profits,
while the natives suffer.

Read into it what you will, but I happen to think that sounds an awful lot like the big Super Bowl festivities going on this weekend!

One last one, and this is going to blow your mind...

The aging warrior does not
go gently into the night;
Enemies remain, fires flare,

SWEET! There WILL be a Die Hard 5!!!!

School canceled for four days in a row? Wow!! (Not that that hasn't happened here, but we had whole towns without power when that happened!)

It is unusual for Dallas to close school for ONE day. Four in a row is insane!!

And I live in South Carolina where we hardly ever get snow -an occasional ice storm that will knock out power for more than a day but we had a 5-day inclement weather week the week after they went back to school from the Christmas Holidays - for us to have that many days due to snow -means some kind of garbage is up with the world - We only have to make up one of the days (already on the calendar as a snow make-up day) so far; who knows if the governor will forgive the other four or if the kids will have to go to school after the end of school to make them up or not -

I don't watch sports so I can only presume that the Pittsburgh Steelers is one of the teams in the superbowl this weekend?

You are the second teacher's blog in the Texas area whom I follow who has been hit with the inclement weather. Not sure where she is in Texas but they also have had at least 2, and possibly 3 or 4 by now, snow days. Hopefully ya'll will thaw out soon and things will be back to normal soon - E :)
