snow day?

There was much anxiety about the impending ice and blizzard.

Do we have milk and eggs? everyone wondered. (Sarcasm. It rarely snows even in inch here, so when it does, there is much...preparation!)

I woke up this morning at 6:45 and immediately looked out the window. Snow falling. That was a good sign! I crawled back in bed, determined not to go to sleep until The Email was sent declaring the fate of all the students of Comm. Central. I finally got up, worried that I would be disappointed and not have a lunch made in time.

My mother came in and announced the Snow Day! I smiled cheerily, if a bit sleepily, and got back in bed. I slept 'til 8:30, something that I had not done on a Monday the whole school year.

I put on a abnormally cute outfit, which consisted of grey jeans, a red shirt, one of my dad's huge blue sweaters, and a pretty necklace. It was what I was going to wear to Comm, but I wouldn't have been able to stand not wearing it after so much thought had gone into it! Yes, I am strange, and go through little clothing phases like everyone else.

I even studied today. Aren't you proud of me? It felt like I was being handed 24 hours on a silver plate. I never get anything done on Mondays because classes don't count.

I sat around. I lounged around. I drank tea by the fire. I wore two pairs of socks. I read 3/4th of Many Waters by: Madeline L'Engle and finished it.

The clouds got exausted after an inch and stopped. Stopped snowing, that is. They rained and sleeted and drizzled for a while longer. None of the snow stuck, but I wasn't planning on going outside anyway.

That's how snow days go in the South.



  1. i know wht u mean. it started snowing here by me in wisconsin around like two or three in the afternoon. its sticking as of right now. i don't like the snow. it reminds of me hoth. :)

  2. I understand. I get spring fever so badly around this time of year! That's my favorite season!

    Eww, Hoth. I see what you mean. I would totally pretend that I was in a Tauntaun every time I got in bed at night!

    1. hahaha, that's a good one. :) empire strikes back joke. got it. :)

  3. Haha that "snow storm" (if you can call it that" was really quite pitiful. We happened to go to Kroger the day before the "storm" to pick up some things to make lunch for the day and when we went to go get milk it was all out! haha!

  4. I am not much of a snow person. But it has only snowed like 3 time in the last 10 years.

    And I tagged you at my blog.
