Yesterday. 5:30am, I woke up to study for my econometrics midterm at 11:30am. It was still pitch black outside but I remembered when I woke up that they forecasted a heavy overnight snowfall. While I was waiting for my coffee to drip drip drip, I looked outside and it didn't seem too bad, but it sure was pretty. I dont even remember the last time that school was cancelled in University like this, but an hour later I got an e-mail calling for an official snow day. Midterm postponed until Wednesday! Macro assignment due on Monday instead of today! Well, alright, I'll take it. I had already had my coffee and jumping back into bed was not an option, so I just watched the story from the skies unfold for a little while longer as it got lighter outside.
I spent the better part of my day (while I wasn't running around town doing errands) cooking dinner for Alicia and Lucas - french onion soup and quiche. And, although this entire town seems to be out of persimmons, we decided to make these cookies anyways. Total comfort. Instead of the persimmons, I used what I had - my favourite chocolate. Oh my god, they're so good, and almost gone already.
Some older snow stories, here (back when I was a film only girl).
