Snow Day

Today is a Snow Day.  This means school will be cancelled – 
 all of us children-at-heart can celebrate.


 The storm was expected.  First it rained, and the wind blew some kind of fierce, which was marvelous because my puppy cuddled really close to keep us safe and warm.  Then, the rain turned to heavy, wet snow.  It’s beautiful because it clings to the trees, and weighs them down, making for the excellent view.  It’s a challenge for city living because the roads are slick and power lines are compromised by the weight.


My pupster was delighted.   She ran, leaped, tasted, pranced and wagged until she needed a break.  Right now she’s napping.  i don’t know if she’s dreaming of her next romp. I do know she is happy.  Snow day means she gets to play in her all time favorite kind of weather – with her mom – because – well, that’s what “Snow Day” means around here, Mom stays home all day to play.

  Here’s the kind of folk my puppy would enjoy.  It’s interesting how every community handles winter weather.  Washington University gives lots of good tips.  This is great because students arrive here from all over the world and may have never seen snow before.

Either way, it’s sure pretty out my door.
