Admission? Okay, so I'm writing this Wednesday night and it'll post Thursday morning (this morning). I'm going to bed with anticipation. We're supposed to receive 17" of snow. YESSIREEBOB! This Wisconsinite is so excited. Here's what I love about snow days:
1. Snow Days. Calling in to work is practically a no brainer. And trust me, in Wisconsin you NEED 17" to justify calling it a "snow day". 6" just doesn't kick it as a reason to call in. Practically anyone used to driving in snow can make it to work with 6" on the ground.
2. Coffee Days. There is no better morning than standing by your patio door looking out on a winter wonderland. The crystals, the glow of white, the shimmer of snowflakes, the miracle of each unique flake out performing the other ... sigh ... and holding a big mug of coffee, rich with the scent of nutty warmth. Gosh I can't wait.
3. Holidays. In anticipation of this weekend and next week, snow will be a welcome sight. It's been a boring December so far. The 2" on the ground is nice, but not enough. I want to snowshoe through my woods, build snowmen with my kids, make snow angels with my daughter ... Yes ... it's coming.
Here's to this morning, and snow, and ... peace!
