WHEN YOU GET A LOT OF SNOW ~ MAKE A SNOWMAN
So it snowed. And for some reason when the weather does things, which it does all the time it becomes a big deal and everyone talks about it. It’s on every channel and it takes over. Did you hear about the snow storm? Think there is going to be a snow storm? How big is it going to be? Like every one has a Doppler chip in their solar plexus or something.
Then there are the life questions. You going out in the snow? We’re closing the office. Think we should close the office? The people on the eighth floor are closing. The schools are closing early. Every goes into a panic.
I don’t know why but I’ve never really been bothered by the weather, in fact I love the snow. I love the big, stay inside, you can’t see your feet when you walk it looks like God through a white blanket over the city kind of storms. Cold, blustery, romantic, movie moment, as long as no one gets hurt, epic storms.
This one was actually none of those things. I don’t know if anyone got hurt. I’m sure there were some car problems. But more people die from drinking and driving then getting in the car in a snow storm and driving.
The only thing I was concerned about was the day of the storm was Lucy’s 13th birthday party. Not her actual birthday, that is this week, but her party. And she always gets gypped. Not like the people who are born on Christmas do, usually getting one gift for both occasions; but she can never have her party on her actual birthday weekend as it always falls on President’s Weekend and most people are out of town. So if the snow was going to prevent her dinner, it wasn’t going to happen next week.
I worked out. I went to the office. I had lunch with my friend and fellow blogger Gotham Gal aka Joanne Wilson. One of my ten friends I promised myself I would have lunch with in the new year.
By four it was coming down, but it was only the start they said. I had Lucy check with her friends and they were all coming. New Yorkers are a tough lot, especially the 13 year old ones. So the party was on.
