Horizontal snow does not say softness, light and Christmas. It doesn't say anything at all. It doesn't have to. Its meanness is clearly understood by anyone taking a quick glance out the window.
On the other hand, I have a snow day! Do you know how excited I am? Usually when the weather's bad, I still have to try to find a way to work. And it's ridiculous because all the patients normally cancel anyway. I haven't had a genuine snow day in years! I brought some work home last night, just in case (there's always paper work, even if there are no patients) and I have some con ed classes to work on, so I can still do some stuff. I'm just loving that I can listen to the wind howling outside (and it is howling) and I don't have to try to get out in it; I won't be getting stuck in a drift somewhere; I don't have to try to make my little Corolla try to stay on the road. (My Corolla's a real lightweight; great for the gas, horrible for traction!)
I guess we had 15+ inches of snow before drifting made it impossible to keep track of measurements. It was still coming down last I checked, but now it may just be blowing rather than coming down. I never stay home all day. Even on days I don't work, I'm always driving somewhere. This is the best day ever! :)
