Snow Day!!!
1/20/2009 10:19:03 AM    [ Flag as Inappropriate ]

For the past two years, I've really missed snow.

I'm sure that sounds strange to people who live with it all winter long. I certainly didn't miss it when I lived in Syracuse, where school will be open with five feet of snow on the ground.

Here in North Carolina, though, it almost never snows. Last year, I don't think it snowed at all. The year before, we had 1/2 an inch that melted after half a day.

So today, sitting in my nice, warm kitchen, staring out at the snow-covered bushes, I feel blessed.

I relived my childhood today. I walked across the street to get cat food, remembering how as a high school student, I once had to slide into the street because of huge piles of snow on the curb. The tracks other people had made reminded me of how as a child, I loved to be the first to make footprints in the snow. And I wanted to make a snowman.

That last one failed.

First of all, I don't have snow pants, seeing as it doesn't snow here, and kneeling in the snow made my knees freeze.

Secondly, I never was any good at making the snow actually stick together to make a big snowball. It always fell apart. Today wasn't any different.

When I went out there, I almost hated to disturb the snow to even try to make the snowman. I cleared a small circle--the only place where snow disturbance was allowed. The snow fell apart in my hands when I tried to roll it into a ball. I ended up making a tiny little snow man--if you can call him that; he looks more like a snow duck or a snow foundation or just a pile of snow.

Now I'm listening to the water boil in the kettle and thinking about braving the snow (yes, it's still snowing!!!) to go to the post office. The roads are clear as far as I can tell. ANd I'm going to have to learn how to drive in snow if I'm going to move to Boston, even if they DO have a decent subway system.

But first, I'm going to have hot chocolate. Hot chocolate is always the best part of a snowstorm.
