No snow, though. No snow days. No snow men. No ice-skating or skitching in the streets. Having grown up in Illinois, in the heart of the Midwest, that was kind of par for the course during the winter. I miss those days. How cool was it when you woke up in the morning and your mother told you to go back to sleep because it was a snow day?! They didn't happen very often but when they did it was like you were handed a little piece of heaven. I remember one blizzard when my dad took my sisters and I on a sled into town to buy some groceries because it was impossible to get a car down the streets. Fun times.
To those of you across the States in the path of the Blizzard of 2011, I hope you weathered the storm safely and snuggly. The Snowcalypse has SyFy movie written all over it, don't you think?! The Return of the Abominable Snowman! Maybe he's a she? So many possibilities...
Happy reading and writing. Have a great weekend! Go Packers!!
