I was starting to get worried that I would have to live through another few months of ugly, sad, rainy miserable weather. Hurrah!

Heh. They let us out at noon, but I still had shitloads of work to do, so I stayed 'til 2:00. I rewarded my diligence on the way home with a stop for wine. It's only 7:30 and I'm pretty drunk.

Remember going sledding on snowdays fr. school? That was the best. Somehow totally superior to weekend sledding cuz it felt somehow truant. It was the 30th (egads!) anniversary of the Blizzard of '78 here a couple of weeks ago. I don't remember how far reaching it was, but it was a history making event for anyone in Greater Boston. We were off school for a couple of weeks. We built this amazing city of forts and tunnels all through our neighborhood cuz no one could use the roads. It was amazing. We have 8mm film of it somewhere; my cat jumping around chasing little snow balls. Magic.

I don't remember ever getting a snow day. I remember going to school on days where it would turn out that only six or seven of us showed up and the teachers let us skip work and go sledding behind the school, but never one where they actually closed down the school altogether.

I guess we're just used to it around here.

I grew up in Vermont - I don't recall ANY snow days. No matter what, you had to bundle up, walk to the bus and then sit there for an hour....

BUT....one time we woke up and it was the most beautiful-post-snow-day ever. My favorite winter memories are sun glistening on snow. I could look at that forever.

My sister could drive. We begged my mom to skip school and go skiing - and she let us! It was fun....
