I love snow days,
maybe it's the excitement of my own childhood that causes me to wake up before 5 am to turn on the news when there is the anticipation of a storm coming to New England..
maybe it is the feeling that I have stolen a day back with my kids from the school system.
maybe it is the excitement that comes from not being able to control weather- like when preparing for a hurricane.
maybe it is the feeling that in the midst of a terribly busy schedule; weather comes to stop our craziness for a moment and gives us a locked down un planned time with family.
yeah, that's it.
I woke up this morning, turned on the news and waited....
school is cancelled, YEAH!
so in anticipation of power outages; I filled up the tub with water (for those with city water- if you have a well, it needs electricity to bring up the water- so you can't flush your toliets without water- filling your tub insures that you can still flush), I gathered emergency candles, cooked food items, and had my husband stoke up the wood stove.
I just fed the kids a big breakfast- home made pumpkin bread with chocolate chips toasty warm from the oven, eggs, and hash... made up an incredible omlet for the adults (kids don't like mushrooms, onions, and peppers)...
so if we can't open the frige- we're full anyway....
gonna head out the door with ice skates on because here in southern New England- we are in cased in ice.
and the good news? We're all home safe, warm, fed and together
Happy NO SCHOOL DAY !
