call it a snow day!

it snowed all day today! from 11-5, the air was dense with light fluffy snow, and my eyes and -brows were caked in ice!

but the snow was so majestic, so smooth and glistening white, and so ceaseless and unrelenting, constant and even to the point of being rhythmic.

when you're on the cusp of childhood like i, you probably still fondly remember the thrill of watching the snow fall in anticipation of a snow day, remember your parents coming into your room in the morning to tell you to stay in bed because school has been cancelled, then staying at home with your sibling(s) and going sledding, helping dad scrape the ice off the driveway, and mom coming home to make you hot soup and make sure you're under the covers so as not to catch cold.

then you'll understand the feelings of incredible joy and overwhelming warmth, despite the harsh conditions, that accompanied the sight of 7 inches of snow!

i never thot i'd see childhood snows like this again, but i am so glad i did.

now if only i could enjoy another snow day...
