C’mon on in, the snow’s fine!

17 Jan

It’s beautiful out today, and if you don’t have anywhere to go, it’s a great opportunity to just cozy up with a good blanket and some junky TV and take some time off from life.

I know a good many teachers who are lamenting the fact that, given this is Martin Luther King, Jr. Day and already a holiday from school, today’s storm is a waste of a perfectly good snow day. BUt on the plus side, knowing that it was coming gave us all a chance to plan ahead to how we might spend it.

For me, of course, it meant a barefoot snow walk. For those of you not familiar with this craziness I do every year, it was a tradition started by my grandmother more than 75 years ago and has been handed down through the generations. My Gia Gia would have been 120 years old this month, so today’s snow walk was done in her memory.

This isn’t the first snow walk I’ve done this winter. That was Dec. 24, when we got our first measurable snow on Christmas Eve. I gave a little more background in this blog into how we’ve carried on this tradition through the years, if you’re interested.

Thinking of my Gia Gia has also motivated me to drag down some of our old records and photo albums from the attic and get them organized today. Seems like a great day to do that.

All this snow is definitely an annoyance, especially if you don’t have the day off of work or school. But we live in Upstate New York. Let’s have fun with that! Make a snow angel! Make a snowman! Have a snowball fight! Then send me photos I can post in my blog.

Or better yet, strip off your socks, run outside and get a little crazy.

    I love your snow walk tradition! Wish someone would join me if I did it. No fun to do it alone⛄️🤣

      Ha! I’ll bet if you ask around, it’ll be easier than you think to find another crazy person like us. Good luck!
