Snow Day

Snow day usually starts the day before. First there's the “dire“ warnings on the news. People rush to Whole Foods after work. While the snow isn't going to last longer than a day or two people prep for weeks of not being able to get fresh fruit. There's not much to do while waiting in line except to monitor weather apps to watch the upcoming “storm of the century”.

Sleep is followed by waking up pulling the blinds up to see if there's anything out there. Sometimes there's disappointment in the lack of nothingness while other times it like “wow”, there's no chance I'm going out there in that wind and snow.

When it does snow, it changes the city immediately. For a brief period everything is reset, its quiet and things a person would normally miss suddenly becomes like new. People become explorers discovering space that seemed to have been hidden.

By the end of the day the snow has turned gray and melts to form small lakes in front of each corner of the sidewalk. Its gross but its the tax to be paid for the joyful exploration that started the day.
