This is the second snow day so far this year! And they're both on Wednesdays. Sadly, and maybe this is a sign of my growing maturity, but I kind of needed to go to work today and get some things done. As I was not there last Wednesday (due to the first snow day), I had a big pile of things and rescheduled meetings for today.
Oh well, it will get done when it gets done.
School was canceled last night, which turned out to be a good thing. It meant I got to drive home before the snow started to pile up. 8 inches in Philly. (We only got 3 here, so not so much shoveling to do this afternoon.)
The snow had been coming down all day by the time I drove home, but it wasn't sticking to the roads yet. However, the snow coated the trees and lawns in a rather fetching manner. The snow came down in big, fluffy flakes. The sky was leaden so the world was cozy, glowing white. Rather like a Christmas card illustration. Philly is actually very picturesque in the snow.
It made me a little homesick, simply because snow never looks that way in Kansas. In Kansas, the snow melts a little in the sun and refreezes at night, creating a crusty diamond-like surface on vast expanses of snow. The day after a storm the sky is a bright, bright blue. The snow is blinding and the ice on the trees reflects the light in such a way as to make you certain that the trees are nothing more than elaborate blown glass sculptures.
