another snow day

Snow days have their own rhythm, different from other days. I wake in the middle of the night and see the message flashing on my phone: snow day, no school. I go back to bed and sleep long.

When I wake, I don't shower and try to look gorgeous. Instead I put on snow pants, an old shirt, big boots, hat, and thick ski gloves. I push the door open, pushing against snow. I go out into a white world. The snow is heavy and deep. I grab the shovel and clear in front of the door. Then the steps. I see that my plow guy has been here already. The driveway is half cleared of snow; he plows all he can reach, and I scoop the rest. He plows my lawn and my neighbor's too, so I have a place to put the scooped snow. I scoop the deck and the driveway until I get tired and hungry. It's still snowing, so the deck is covered again when I go back inside. Hot coffee and an egg sandwich.

It will snow all day and I will go out and scoop every few hours. Inside I will write a paper, answer work emails, edit a new online course, and read. Outside: plow trucks go by, very few cars, neighbors run snow blowers and brush off their cars. The snow falls quietly, steadily.

snow day

We don't have wildfires,  rattlesnakes, earthquakes, hurricanes,or tsunamis. We do have humid summers, mosquitoes, poison ivy, and six months of winter. It's been raining for a month. Now it's cold. Snow is expected for tomorrow: eight inches of fluffy ice crystals.

We don't have endless tropical beaches or red rock canyons. We do have sandy beaches and pink granite. We have a month or two of summer and glorious falls. We have snow days: curl up with a good book, go outside in the storm every few hours to shovel, drink hot herbal tea, and relax. Go from jammies to snow pants and back. Get a good workout shoveling and scooping snow. Then rest. Repeat. It's a snow day.

Fall rain

I like the sound of rain on a tin roof, splashing down, seeking the sea
