The cell phone text bing brought the message that still throws an extra beat into the heart.
My library director decided it best to stay closed today. We had freezing rain overnight. Snow started topping that several hours before sunrise.
Didn’t those two words make you think of spending the next eight or so hours rummaging around your yard and the neighborhood with your sled underarm? Friends finding hills on which to slide. Snowballs to pack and sling. Grilled cheese sandwiches to Campbell’s chicken soup for a mid-day warmup thanks to mom.
Dig out the cars so dear wife Karen can get to her job at the surgery center, thankfully only a half-mile down the road. Why oh why did I have to park behind her after my bowling league last night?
Get on social media to tell the community our library will remain shuttered for today. We don’t want anybody taking unnecessary trips during the predicted daylong snow.
Lug the iPad outside to find some snowy morning images to share.
Get back in to spend an indoor snow day with our cherished rescue mutt Ellie B aka Dogamous Pyle, so far totally unfazed by the snow day.
I’ve changed my M.O. over the decades.
Be safe out there if you’ve been hit by winter weather.
