Heralding in Spring today on the Equinox, I look outside to a snow-cloud covered sky. While I must admit, I was excited for Spring to have sprung today, I also am probably the last person in my neighborhood who can say yes to one last snow fall for the season.
Because for me, there’s something still very magical about snow falling, the crisp cold in the air and the smell, oh! the smell of snow coming! You know that smell, don’t you? That smell excites me to my very core because I love to watch snow fall and to be out amidst those big huge flakes as they waft down. Oh, I’m so excited, like a little child! My children laugh at me because I’m the one who insists we should wear our pjs inside out for a potential snow day off from school! Have you followed that tradition too at your house?
I love the fact that towards the end of the week, after the snowfall, we will have warmer temperatures which means melting snow and not as much shoveling! Woo Hoo! But honestly, I don’t mind shoveling as long as there’s not a lot to do. You know me though, I like Mother Nature’s gifts for the most part.
We’ve had our share of snowfalls this year thus far, so I am sure that there are plenty of people who don’t like my Pollyanna attitude towards the anticipated snowfall. But as a gal who enjoys what a snowday offers – staying home in our pjs, being housebound while watching the outside world go by in a sea of white flakes, playing board games and watching tv, and eating comfort foods with my children – well, then can we just enjoy one last snowday – please!
