Today is the first real snow day in about a year. It has been the warmest winter we have seen since we moved to Virginia.
I find snowy winter days starkly beautiful. But then I don't live in Upper Michigan like Lee's family. They have had snow since about October! It would quickly lose its charm if I had to live with it for months at a time. Or weeks at a time. A couple of days makes a welcome change, though.
I have a friend who home schools her girls. (You can see her blog by clicking on What We Do on the left side of this blog.) I heard that they declared today a snow day. Even though it didn't really start snowing until around 2:00. And they don't have to drive to school. I'm with those girls. Snowy days should be celebrated and one should not have to work.
