I love participating in Slice of Life, started by Two Writing Teachers and writing a story, reflection, or musing at least once a week.
"The big snow storm predicted for most of the Tri-State ended up being a big flop," Jason Adams, meteorologist remarked. Here in Cincinnati, the hype over all the snow that was supposedly coming ended in a disappointing snowflake or two. Our school was dismissed an hour early and everyone checked their weather apps all day long. Evening activities were canceled. Lots of Cincinnatians hunkered down in their homes after buying staples at the grocery store, awaiting the onslaught. Nothing. Absolutely nothing.
I know for some in the South and East, the huge amounts of snow have caused hardships. I certainly don't wish that on anyone! However, a long, cold, gray, drizzly Cincinnati winter can be a drag. A good snow can add some fun and excitement - some magic to an otherwise dull season. The beauty of a winter wonderland beats a cold rain any day. We may not have gotten snowmageddon this time around, but it's only January. Maybe February? In the meantime, I'll scroll through my Facebook friends' pictures of snowdrifts and toboggan runs, snowman building and skiing, snowball fights and snow-covered dog muzzles. Enjoy your snow days and working on that to-read pile. Next time, send a little our way!
