Days Like Today...

It's days like today that make me feel glad Obama has got the problem of global warming licked. Ahh, the freezing snow blowing around me, the frozen winter air hitting my face, the piles and piles of frozen precipitation all over the roads, who wouldn't want this

It's days like today that make me feel glad for salaried jobs. The poor folks getting- or in this weather, not getting- hourly pay must enjoy the snow only slightly less than my father, whom I connived into picking me up when my boss announced a snowday and I didn't know how to get home.

It's days like today that me appreciate a little pot bubbling on the stove with milk, cocoa powder and splenda. Or that book that I've been wishing I had time to read for weeks. And let's not forget the tantalizingly empty couch....

It's days like today that make me realize that although I hate snow, every cloud has a silver lining. My eyes are closing as I type this, and I'm intending to fully enjoy this day off. Shame though that MP doesn't wanna have a snowball fight with me...

I agree! I love lazy days (even though I have already had two of them!) It's nice to be able to just relax... plus all the blustering snow puts me in a poetic mood!
(you have your hot cocoa with splenda also?? i thought i was the only one!)

Ah, days like today. Two parents trying to work from home side-by-side on two computers. Three teenage girls who think they have a vacation day. Three hyperactive young boys, also home from school. Trying to shovel out so we can go to work tomorrow. THAT will be a mechaya.

I'll be the first to comment!
(That's for YOU!)

I actually LOVE the snow!! It's just so beautiful to look out the window and see all that snow coming down and the streets all covered in white!

I'd have a snowball fight with you! What time should we meet?

I think you're having a bad (good? :) ) effect on me. I was chalishing to have a snowball fight today, but none of my friends would oblige me. Those of us who work in an office don't necessarily get a day off for the snow - I worked from home today :(

But, yes, days like today make me forget all the trouble that snow causes and appreciate its beauty. Until I have to go driving in it.

Oh my gosh, I really miss having snow days! Those were some of the best times:)

I hate the snow. But when I looked out the window last night and saw the snow covering everything, it reminded me of a Dr. Suess book. Can't remember which one, but I did see the snow differently for one second.

I wish..enjoy the snow! The past few days here have been in the 30s celcius with 80%+ humidity :)

Snow would be beautiful :)

RD- Yep, my favorite treat!!

Tesyaa- Yeah, lol. My mother was commenting how lucky she is not to have little kids around. She actually got stuff done that day.

IAG- It's nice till you have to drive in it.

MM- I had to do a bit of work from home, but its so much more relaxing to work from home, even if you are working.

Mirage- Yeah, snow days as a kid are awesome. Here, even if you have the day off, you know that it means you're gonna wind up staying late the next day, trying to get everything done... As a kid it was pure fun. Plus no driving.

Mushkie- It's beautiful to look at. Not so beuatiful the minute you have to go anyplace. Trust me.
