Snow Day!

Including today, there are four days left until May. So, um, why is it snowing? I think Mother Nature missed the memo about it being Spring. Apparently she also missed Gore's book about global warming, but that's a rant for another day. (Okay, it's probably a rant for another blog since I washed my hands of that whole ranty thing.)

Bob Robin is more than a little pissed about the white stuff. And little Miss Mourning Dove looks positively dejected, huddle on her branch like she is. On a morning like this, I agree with her. It's hard to sing - even when you only have one song - when you wake up to unexpected flitters. Still, there must be something positive in all this...

So, I think I'm going to declare a snow day. There's less than a quarter inch of the stuff. It's only sticking to cars and the tips of grass, but when life hands you mid-Spring snow, make a slushie. =o)

In honor of this end-of-April bizarreness, I'm canceling school. It'll make one teenager happy, and instead of school, she can do what she loves - which is to say she'll be helping me out in my bookstore. We're doing some inventory work to make sure everything on the shelves is listed for sale, and everything listed for sale exists in inventory.

Sounds boring, but we really do have fun doing it. We did a little of this on Friday, and my kid - who's been pondering what to be when she grows up - asked if there was a job where she could spend her days organizing and analysing data. (If you can think of anything other than Data Analyst, let me know.)

For me, a snow day really isn't that different from a regular day, except I get to use my computer more. (She does a couple subjects online, and her computer isn't hooked to the internet.) I may get a little writing done this afternoon, or I could make up for not doing any writerly pursuits yesterday and start typing in the edits for Nano.

What do you have planned for today? How's the weather where you are?

  1. Weather is amazing! Plans: writing, then floating in pool with Deidre (yes, Knight) and then possibly a movie.
