Principal Bob Sampson at Bellingham Christian School in Washington state canceled school on Friday to celebrate an exceptionally nice day. The forecast there: 68 and sunny.

DAVID GREENE, HOST:

Good morning. I'm David Greene. You ever wonder why it took a big snowstorm to close school and on beautiful, sunny days there we are sitting in a classroom? Well, enter Bob Sampson. He's the principal at Bellingham Christian School in Washington state and he canceled school today to, quote, "celebrate an exceptionally nice day." The forecast there: 68 and sunny. No resentment here in the dark studio, all of us at work. Nope, not jealous, because it's always sunny at MORNING EDITION.
