Weather is not my friend

Last week it snowed.  A lot.  The meteorologist on TV suggested taking 3 measurements in different areas and average them to determine how much snow we received.  In  my yard it ranged from 22" to 27".  No matter how you average it, that's a lot of snow.
This is a yardstick stuck in the snow in my yard.

This creates an insane amount of havoc on my class schedule.  Last Tuesday I had a class scheduled, which meant I had to reschedule.  One person I tested alone, one switched to a class this upcoming week, the others I have not heard back from.  This is a healthcare provider renewal, so if they need it they'll call or email.  I don't chase people down.

This week we're getting snow.  Again.  On Monday.  When I have 3 classes scheduled.

{sigh}

I just spent 20 minutes figuring out how to fit more classes in over the upcoming week to reschedule all these students.  Normally I can squeeze it in.  But for the last month, and in this month I am working more hours at my part-time job. I always thought I'd like more hours, but not I'm seeing the downside as it is making scheduling so much more difficult.  Add in a few medical or dental appointments for myself or my kids, and my calendar is booked solid.  If anyone can figure out how to get more than 24 hours in a day please let me know.

So the weather is not my friend.  It would be so much easier if it would snow on a day I'm not teaching, but I have no control over that.  Please be considerate when I'm trying to reschedule.  I'm doing my best to accommodate everyone and their certification needs.
