For 3 years, we've been deprived of even so much as a 2-inch snowfall in this area; for 3 winters, our kids - sleds at the ready - have waited patiently for one big storm, big enough to cancel schools and work -- cancel everything, really, but the fun. And, at long last, it looks as if their patience will be rewarded.
8-10 inches are predicted for tomorrow, people - and we are OVER THE MOON about this. Do you know how dreary it is to go through an entire winter without even one snow day to break up the monotony? At last, our ridiculously fast-paced suburban lifestyle will be made to stand still, if only for 24 hours or so - and snowmen will be built, cocoa will be drunk, homemade cinnamon rolls will be consumed with abandon.
Bring it on, Mother Nature - we are SO ready.
