We’re just a few weeks in, and this winter has already made history. With record low temperatures and snow in regions that haven’t seen it for generations, it’s been a banner year for snow days, to say the least. But, true to form, Southerners have taken it all in stride, and have even found ways to relish this brutal winter.

With a handful of snow days already under their belts, nobody is enjoying this bizarre weather more than students and teachers. Tasked with something they rarely get to do—canceling school—superintendents and administrators are getting especially creative with their snow day announcements, including one singing principal (below) from Union Pointe Academy in Florence, Kentucky, whose musical stylings have propelled him to viral fame.

If we didn't know it already, teachers and school officials are all heroes. These folks deserve a standing ovation. And perhaps a retweet!
