I love having a snow day! I get so giddy at having a bonus day off to be snuggled up at home. And I never really thought about this until today but I’m guessing people in California don’t know what it’s like to have a snow day. Growing up in Chicago, snow days were kind of rare. I suppose we were just so used to bad weather that we just sucked it up and kept going. So a true snow day where school was cancelled was a big deal! It was the the most exciting thing to wake up and turn on the news and see my school’s name scroll by with all the other closings. Ah, I’m so glad that I was raised in a place with snow days. This storm was supposed to be a big one so the entire city shut down. I’m talking travel ban, no MBTA, cereal gone from grocery store shelves shut down. My day involved sleeping in a bit, working out, cleaning, quilting, and cooking. The best! We also couldn’t resist taking a walk through the snow. There were no cars out (except for the ones parked on the side of the road and buried in snow) and there were a surprising number of people walking in the streets getting some fresh air and enjoying the clean, fluffy snow.
Yup, I’m a dork.
There’s our car… We’ll dig it out eventually. Maybe in May.
I’m so glad that we both still enjoy the novelty of a good snow day. And I’m thankful that I have a warm home with electricity and food to shelter in during the storm. I know that not everyone is as lucky as we are but I hope everyone is staying safe and warm today.
