A Simple Request

Tiny flakes of snow are falling outside my window.  Inside I am warm and cozy in my most comfortable pair of sweatpants.

In many ways, it seems like a perfect winter evening.  The reality is that the daffodils behind my house are in full bloom, as are the tulip trees and pear trees.  Six miles away the cherry trees that surround the Tidal Basin are just about to bloom.

From the looks of things one would think that spring has arrived, and that makes me pretty happy. The only thing that would make me happier is just one snow day on the school calendar.

Whaddya say Mother Nature?


  1. I love the contrast between your first two paragraphs! And yes, a snow day is always a good thing!

  2. Hoping and praying! With you!

  3. You can have all the snow days we've had in Maine for exchange of all the blooming spring things around you!! it is grey here- all grey. I'm so ready for the warm weather and green grass! :)

  4. Me too! I'm dying for spring but I would completely take a delay for a snow day!
