All public schools in Georgia are closed today and tomorrow due to the snow!  (If you don’t believe me, see the official Ministry of Science and Education statement here).  I had to be told this in three different languages before I believed it, and the idea that schools are closed nation-wide still makes my head spin a little.  My immediate reaction, of course, was “Oh! Four-day weekend! Maybe I can travel?”.  We’ll see how the weather progresses before making any decisions on that one.  You can see in this picture of me and my students outside our school (taken by one of my co-teachers) that there is some serious (record-breaking, apparently) snow in Kakheti.

Em and some very brave 3rd and 5th graders outside the school
