Today is a “no school day.” How great is that? I guess March is coming in like a lion after all. But oh so quietly…
We had buckets of rain fall yesterday, then the ice came last night. Morning commutes were hazardous at best. I know that folks in other parts of the country make fun of us Southerners for our driving in the snow, but, actually, we can do that. It’s the ice that is so treacherous. Thankfully my husband made it to work OK.
Now the snow is finally falling. And that is a good thing. A top layer of snow makes ice driving much easier. But as for me, I am staying home today. Even so, I have miles to go before I sleep.
My to-do list is very long, and my head cold is long gone (I hope!) so now I can focus and get some things done. That is, if I don’t get distracted by the beauty of the falling snow.
The view out my window reminds me of a poem I love. Even though this snow is coming during the day, it is still quiet. And so beautiful. And it’s making a blanket for safe driving home for those at work today.
The snow fell softly all the night
It made a blanket soft and white.
It covered houses, flowers and ground,
But it did not make a single sound.
