It's our first snowfall of the year. 10-15 cm (5-6") are supposed to come down, so school is closed. I drove to work alone this morning just as the snow was starting: it was quiet on the streets, not quite fully daylight, and the snowflakes were light and fluffy. It was magical!
I love being at work when it's snowing heavily. I'm by myself with the radio, a cup of hot chocolate and my emergency supply of soup and granola bars. I'm only 5 minutes from work, so by mid-afternoon when I slowly head back home, the snowplows and salt trucks will have done their job and the driving should be fine.
In the meantime, I type and sing and sip and think of earlier days when the girls were little and we'd have snowdays. And with the festive season closing in, I was reminded of one of our favorite Christmas albums by Raffi.
