Snow Day!

So Winter Storm Hercules came to visit. There is a fair amount of snow - 5" or so - but nothing those of us in the Northeast haven't successfully lived through several times before.

LL had no school today which is awesome because neither one of us are morning people by nature, and we tend to go feral during long school breaks by staying up until 1 or 2 am, then waking up at 9 or 10 am. At least now we have the weekend to try to get back to school schedule. For six more months. I cannot believe she is getting ready to graduate from high school. What a big year for changes 2014 will be!

Other than that though, it's amazing how my brain works on snow days. Snow Day! I can sit inside and drink hot chocolate and knit and crochet and write patterns all day! Yay! The thing is, I work from home - so other than the unreasonable hot chocolate craving a snow day isn't really all that much different from any other winter day. It's not like I commute anywhere on a daily basis. A snow day just means I don't have to wake up early, and I can't run out to Staples for printer ink.

But still - Snow Day! Yay! I think it's a response ingrained from childhood. You folks that grew up in warmer climates will never know the joy of that instant holiday feeling. Sorry about that...

Be safe and enjoy the breaks that Mother Nature gives you!

I used to love listening to the radio waiting to hear if school was closed due to snow :) No snow where I live now, but we do have poya days, when there is a full moon, so as long as it lands on a week day I get a day off every month :)
