And since we’ve no place to go, Let It Snow! Let It Snow! Let It Snow!
If I could just remove the wind from this snow equation, I would rate this day an 8 on the awesome scale. Yes, I LOVE the first snow… hate the dreary gray days of winter — but do think falling snow is about the most beautiful thing ever. For all my talk about wanting to live in a warmer climate, this is what I would desperately miss.
I think the thrill of snow for me (and maybe you too!) began because as a student, snow meant the excitement of not going to school. Continuing on for several years thereafter, snow still meant no school and translated to days off from work. Even when I worked at a bank, snow meant it was ok to be late (since I lived out of town I had a wonderful excuse) and often meant if I made it in, I left early to beat more snow. All the talk throughout the day with customers was about… you guessed it… SNOW. And even though ‘getting to work’ these days means walking from the bedroom to the office (sometimes still in pajamas), I still have trouble thinking that a snow day should actually be a WORK day. I figure it’s a good thing the days between Christmas and New Year’s is a time that large corporations are most likely not going to be booking a speech anyway, because it’s a SNOW DAY, you guys.
Those pesky neighbors can brag about their warm temps today and I don’t care one little bit. I prefer what I’ve got right here. Right now.
