It started around 2am last night. It was after I was done streaming, and after I had put away two episodes of Top Chef season 4. I was in my work group chat and people were wondering about road conditions. Then it started. At first I thought it was ice, but no, it was snow. Then I got a Weather Channel notification on my phone warning me of a snowstorm. Oh, boy!
I woke up at 9am and looked outside, and holy crap, it snowed! Granted, this is a light dusting compared to what other places get, but holy crap, it snowed! It looks like I am going to spend today indoors, watching Svengoolie episodes I have backlogged, and waiting for the NXT Takeover show to begin.
I do have to say, though, snow is a lot different as an adult than it was when I was a kid. As a kid it snowed so few times that I really enjoyed running outside and making a snowman. I do have a photo in the archives of a snowman I once made. It was fun. I remember I put my dad's welding helmet on it and took photos. The last time it snowed (a light dusting), my sister-in-law sent me a photo of my niece and nephew playing with the snow and throwing snowballs. I bet today those kids are gonna run outside and have so much fun. I can't wait for their pictures. And now it's off to the land of hot cocoa and television. This is how I celebrate snow days as a grown up!
