Slice of Life: Spring Break Snow 22 of 31

For the month of March, I'll be writing with the Slice of Life community. Disclaimer: I'll be writing every day so the writing will be a bit unpolished most days. Thanks to Two Writing Teachers for bringing this community together and for inspiring me to try to find the stories that surround me each day.

Bzzzzz.  Bzzzzz.  Bzzzzz.

My husband's phone vibrates waking me from sleep.  Reaching up toward my watch that is charging, I touch the side to display the time.  It's 5:22 in the morning and his phone is ringing.  That can only mean one thing:  snow day.

For today.
Road conditions.

Nothing about that is unusual, snow days are pretty common in our rural area, except that it is March and it is my spring break.  Oh, the irony.

First day of spring,
Covered in white.
Temperatures dive.
Flakes fall.  
Ground covered.
White winter wonderland

I try to go back to sleep, but I'm awake.  I creep into the living room and turn on the news.  The school closing list continues to grow and the forecast is for more snow.  It looks like we'll be getting 2-4 inches of snow before it is over.

Spring break


  1. Oh no, that does not sound like the way spring break should go. I am hoping you have 70 degrees tomorrow so it all melts away quickly! Hang in there, spring really will be here soon.

  2. Oh, the irony is right. Here's to a day of cozy on the couch reading a book with a delicious coffee! Hope those warmer temps arrive quickly to melt all that snow.

  3. Yep, the irony didn't escape me either. :-) ~JudyK

  4. A snow day on your spring break! That just isn't right. I hope you enjoy your time relaxing and resting. Snow or not.

  5. Wow, I didn't realize it got so bad in places that schools were closing. Such a bummer that a snow day happened on your spring break, but good that you and Jeff got to spend a day together!

  6. Ouch! That's the benefit to having "spring break" in April - much less of a chance of that happening. Hope you enjoyed your surprise day together!
