A Very Blustery Day

After we enjoyed a white Christmas for the first time in 17 years, there is more snow in the forecast in my neck of the woods. Snow, then sleet or just cold rain perhaps? I love snow, I really do. It’s lovely and makes everything feel a little magical. Living in a valley, we don’t usually get very much…but growing up on the edge of a plateau, we always got a LOT. Snow days are something I miss most from childhood…waking up early to watch the ticker across the bottom of the television screen, crossing our fingers that our county would be listed as closed. I’m a total chicken about driving when the weather is rough, but it’s more fun to stay home anyway…snug as a bug with lots of cocoa and good books & movies!

Do you get snow days where you are? And if so, what is your favorite way to spend them?
