Snow (Ice) Day


The rain turned to sleet which turned to snow. It's beautiful outside and potentially dangerous (the dreaded black ice!).

An incredible artist friend of mine once did a series of comic-like drawings of people who are forced to share space...a group of pregnant women in an OB/GYN's office for instance. My favorite, though, was titled "In Line at Wal-Mart, Expecting a Snowstorm." It's genius because it's an experience most of us can relate to. We just braved the neighborhood IGA and every cart was taken, a total madhouse. But I got pizza makings and hot chocolate and rock salt so we're all good to go.

I freakin' love it when it snows in Arkansas because people go apeshit. It's an impromptu holiday. So go ahead, leave work early, put on your sweats, have a glass of whiskey....it's what I'm doing after all.

standing in line . . . made me laugh out loud.

i love the icy branches, i can remember waking up as a kid after an ice storm just as the sun was coming out and wooded area next to our house would sparkle, it was like stepping into a fairy tale

I'm so jealous. We have no excuse not to go to work when it snows in New York.
