This edition of the Minesing Moments is being written while I look through the window at the snow blowing sideways. What a terrible day it is. Though the students are happy it’s a snow day. For the students who are writing exams, it means an extra day to cram in some studying, which I am absolutely sure they will take advantage of. Winter doesn’t look like it’s going anywhere soon.
