Do you think we could send some Maryland snow to Texas?
My husband wakes me up every morning around 5 a.m...just before he heads out the door for his job at the radio station. I usually turn on the radio to get the latest news and lay there with my covers up to my nose contemplating how cold it's gonna be moving from my bed to the the bathroom. This morning, as I laid there shivering under my covers, I heard about how Washington, D.C. and other parts of the country were in for yet another "snow day".
Ahhhhhhhhhhhh...snow days. I remember that... I grew up in the Midwest and remember many a nite (when I hadn't completed my term paper or hadn't studied for a test) praying for God to dump enough snow for the superitendent to call it a "snow day". There was nothing better than to look out your window in the morning and see about 10 inches of snow sitting on top of your car and not being able to see the road in front of your house. It would be one of the few times we would bound out of bed and run to the radio to hear if there were any school closings.
My Mom and Dad would be yelling in the background, "You better get ready! If they don't call it...then you all will be scrambling to be on time to school!" They were right...but we hoped against all odds that they would call a "snow day". When the announcement would be made...there would be great rejoicing in the house...at least until we realized that we were out of milk and there was nothing to eat. Even so...we would work around it and then start making plans on how we would spend our day to do nothing. Some of my fondest memories were of those days we were forced to do "nothing" and spend time with each other. There was no place to go...except maybe to go outside and make snowmen and clear driveways. We made do with what we had to eat in the house and we played games that had been pushed in the back side of our closets.
We don't have snow days in Texas. And...I am sure there are those of you in other parts of the Active Rain community that wish your snow days were over. For me...I laid in bed this morning...wishing for a snow day...
