The weathermen have been busy for the last couple of days, promising a blizzard that seemed it would never hit. Dance classes were cancelled just in case. Businesses let out early in preparation. And little girls demanded boots in preparation.
My 7 year old has been talking about the blizzard since yesterday, and today she came home with a new idea: snow day. If it is still snowing really really hard in the morning, they might just cancel school. And you know what? I hope they do. I remember the excitement that went along with a snow day. They were so rare that it was a special treat to spend the day shoveling snow, rather than a chore. And there is just something wonderful about drinking hot chocolate after spending the morning in the snow.
You know what? I might just make tomorrow a snow day, no matter what.
