The snow here has been slower to melt than usual. I do my fair share of grumbling and such (especially when the city lets it get all slushy and then freeze on the roads). But then this weekend I found myself gazing out the windows at the trees that still wore white and found myself thinking about how magical the landscape was. I really do love that transformation too!

I like contrasts in the seasons, and I think one of the things I liked the most about upstate, NY was that when spring finally did come, you really, truly appreciated its arrival--it felt amazing when the snow finally let go and signs of spring popped up. So I like have "mini" versions of that awakening here--snow, followed by warmer days.

How wonderful! I'm so glad you finally got your snow day! We've had six cancelled school days, so have already had schedule changes to keep our hours up. If we get any more, they'll shorten our spring break. So now it's hard, but we're all wishing for no more! It's still in me though, that desire for a free day. A snow day. It's one reason I wanted to change careers to teaching. I love staying home when the weather outside is frightful. :-) It's snowing here today, but just an inch. It's lovely though, covering up all of the dirty, half-melted piles of snow and ice. Makes it look much nicer, so I'm grateful for that.
Have a great week!

Thanks, Omaha!

This will probably be our only snowy weather this winter, so we milked it for all it was worth!
