As you all know… the northeast was hit by a freak snow storm last week. Yes folks this year has been one of wonderment and random weather choices for us. First the “TROPICAL STORM FORMERLY KNOWN AS HURRICANE IRENE” came through and left us without power for days and then we had an EARTHQUAKE and then SNOWTOBER!
SNOWTOBER is the most recent of Mother Natures way of telling us the 80’s that fueled hairspray really should have been a broadway show and NOT a way of living!
So… we are now paying for this ozone hole that is spewing all sorts of angry climate changes our way.
Our snowy day started like any other… it was a lazy saturday, we had heard of the snow news but didn’t really take it seriously. I mean a SNOWSTORM in October PSHA!
It started to flurry… and we ran out to play… “um where is the snow MOM?”
I grew up in Florida and we never had snow days. I love snow days. Lily does too. I love the white snow falling, I love the sound of the snow ploughs and I love the smell of coffee on a cold snowy day.
Snow meals at the diner are some of my favorite times. Our charming little town practically shuts down during snow storm but most businesses stay open. So to show our support we get our snow boots on and head out to the wine store, the market or the diner.
When we arrived back home, we were met with falling tree limbs all around us.
The snow storm left us without power and water for a few days. This discomfort certainly made us appreciate the simple luxuries that we take for granted – A warm home, clean water, hot water, lights!
