Waiting expectantly for snow…We all listen to the reports and make decisions about our days. This one wasn’t supposed to be more than a hassle, no runs to the grocery store. Just enough to inconvenience us. I will admit that other than some of the hassles of the decisions, I love a storm. I love the free time that it brings.

A friend in California said that some New England transplants out there really missed having a snow day, a day without responsibilities, a day for reading or napping or baking or playing. Without snow days, or even partial snow days, we don’t stop for the serendipitous moment.

I hope everyone is safe. I also hope that you had a serendipitous moment of doing something that wasn’t on the calendar.
