March 13, 1993 (I think). That was the last time I had a snow day. It was the “Blizzard of ’93″. And yes, it was a blizzard. By the time it was over there had been 19 inches of snow, thundersnow, 40MPH winds and no power for a week. I remember listening to a portable radio – specifically I remember “Desire” by Gene Loves Jezebel – and eating tuna from a can (because I wanted to).
That was the last time I had a snow day, until today.
I had been dying for a snow day. Even when it had snowed, it was never enough to keep me from work OR it happened over the weekend. Today, that streak ended.
Just west of Atlanta we got about three inches of snow but the freezing rain is still coming down. So this morning a walk in the snow was actually a walk on the ice. But whatever, I’m not complaining.
There’s a corned beef slow cooking in the oven. Work email coming and going and I’m about to find some music to put own. The trees – they are covered in ice now – but it is especially pretty.
This Southern boy does love snow.
This begs the question – what do you like doing on your snow day?
