Snow Day

No school, no work – it’s a snow day! I haven’t had a snow day in ages! This morning I woke up and raced to the window to see what the weather had brought us overnight, and peering out the window while it was still dark out took me back immediately to snow days as a kid. I’d wake up, fingers crossed, and sit glued to the local news, patiently waiting for my school district name to scroll by at the bottom under school closures. And if I was so lucky, I’d go back to bed and sleep til 10 – when it was time for my brother and I to curl up on the couch with some lucky charms and The Price Is Right. We don’t have a tv, so instead Billy and I headed to the diner down the street and read The New York Times while eating omelets. Almost as good as The Price Is Right.

The snow is still coming down hard, so these pictures may look like not much yet, but I think it will be quite a pile out there by the end of the day.
