Chocolate Cookies and Snow Plows

When I was a child the clank of the snow plow going by early in the morning meant no school...chocolate chip cookies, soggy mittens, and a long game of Monolopoly!

Early this morning I heard the familiar clank, jumping out of bed, I opened my curtains to find a winter wonderland. What a welcome sight after all of that rain!

The lights on the plow were blinking...clanging along, and I could only imagine all the children on the street were jumping out of bed wishing for the snow day as well.

It is just a delay, but enough time for a second cup of coffee, answer emails, and enjoy the feeling of going "late" to school.

Don't we just love snow plows?
