Then we got dumped on by the truckloads. Now the big man in the white house thinks we are a bunch of sissies . But really, what's not to like about a snow day?
Wake up in the morning, look out onto the soft pillows of snow that have settled on everything and then check office website.
Liberal leave....yipee! go back to bed and settle in a little more deeply under the blanket. Wake up at around noon, look outside once more and murmur at the snow (which by now has turned to ice). Proceed to plod around in pyjamas, call up friends and discuss how "snowed in" one is while chowing down hot ramen soup. Plod around some more, listen to NPR and pontificate on the economy or watch the weather people on the local TV station go bananas. The next step is the most important of all...keep annoying the Boy about shovelling sidewalk till he gives up and goes out to shovel the sidewalk and clean the cars! Plod around near the door and helpfully dispense clots of constructive criticism. Shovelling done, warm up with some coffee (for the Boy!!), watch Lord of the Rings, eat leftovers for dinner and somewhere in between go take a shower. So you tell me, what's not to like about a snow day?
