The Sunday Salon ~ Winter Joy

The Sunday Salon.com

What a beautiful day we’re having today in Roanoke, VA.  Fat, wet flakes of snow are falling so fast at times that Emma keeps saying, “It’s a blizzard!”  I don’t know about that, but we’ve gotten between 2 and 3 inches of snow here thus far today.  When I look out of the window, I feel so close to my native Michigan. What a joyful day!

        It’s raining cat and dog here in San Francisco. I have found myself staying in all day immersing in the world of Scarlett O’Hara! I certainly have made headway through the book.

          Well, the weather system that gave you snow is giving us a little rain and a whole helluva lot of wind. And cold weather (for Florida). Poo on you Matt! I’ve gotten nowhere with Scarlett. Haven’t read all weekend. I was distracted with grocery shopping, laundry, blogging and a big ‘ol crawfish party at friends.

                    Yes, we’re having the same “blizzard” here in Alexandria VA, too. And since I’ve never learned to love snow, I’m not too pleased. But it’s a perfect excuse to stay inside and spend the day reading!

                        The first year I moved to Newport News, Virginia, we had a snow day during the winter, and the local news anchor was calling it a blizzard. My mom and I (we’re originally from NJ, and my mom also lived in Vermont for a while) ran to the window, excited to see the blizzard. We were a little surprised to see maybe a 1/2 inch of snow on the ground! That’s when we realized the Virginia definition of blizzard was a little different than the one we were used to!

                          It’s fun to compare what’s happening in different places. Yesterday we raked leaves off the flowerbeds, and today the first of my crocus flowers are blooming! I’m in central Illinois.
