Just as predicted, more snow. And yes, schools are closed again. This is a gorgeous, fluffy snow, the kind that appears to coat tree branches with cotton puffs. While I got my fill of the white stuff several snow days ago, this one occurs at a welcome time. My daughter returned yesterday morning from her annual drama trip to New York City. It’s a twenty-four hour excursion, from 4 AM Saturday to 4 AM Sunday. They saw the musical Pippin, did an improv workshop, toured the theatre district and went to the Top of the Rock. D slept until early afternoon but was still exhausted. Today is a much-needed catch-up day, a time to ease back, slowly, into her regular schedule. A 5:30 wake-up in our house is never pretty, but it would have been frightfully ugly this morning. Thank you, St. Patrick’s Day snow!
On a sadder note, the kids may be in school until mid-July.
