You only know it’s a snow day because the school district calls to wake you up to tell you it’s a snow day. While this should be an occasion to sleep in all snug in our beds before waking well rested and snug to rub the sleep from our eyes, it isn’t. Instead we must pop out of bed and throw on snow gear RIGHT AWAY so that we don’t miss any of the snow. Because it will be gone or worthless by 10:30 AM.
No, we don’t really need the snow gear, but we have it so we need to make good use of it.
If you’re lucky you manage a walk, a snow ball fight and a very thin snow angel while you gross someone out by eating fluffy white flakes right off a tiny tree branch.
Happy snow day Portland! May your socks be warm, your cocoa be hot and your snow be fluffy.
