>My first snow day
December 9, 2009 §
I’m learning about the perks of country living.
Because of a massive snowstorm, which blew in from the west early this morning, school is closed for the day.
Last night, before the snow fell, there were no visible signs to the amateur eye that this amount of snow was possible.
For once, the meteorologists were right about predicting the weather.
I’m going to stay inside for most of the day, bundled up in a sleeping bag next to the bay window with a cup of hot cocoa and a good book.
Its cold outside, but it’s warm in here.
One slight problem: I don’t own a shovel. This afternoon, I’ll have to walk in my non-snow boots over to the hardware store with the hope that they aren’t sold out.
Otherwise, it looks like I’m not going anywhere for a while.
Keeping up with my country learning curve is a fun challenge.
Time to hibernate.
