Today's 100 words:

Today looks to be the first day this winter that we're getting snow that sticks, not melting away immediately after falling to the lawn and driveway but remaining, blanketing, warming in the way only cold snow can warm, and I know the children will be excited when they awaken this morning, when they race to the living room window and discover that finally--finally!--the cold, white, frozen fun awaits them, and they will want to play in it, don their coats, boots, and snow pants, mittens, hats, and scarves, but it's still too early, much too early, for that.


  1. Mmm, snow. We didn't have that much of it where I lived growing up, but we could count on a couple of days of no-stick snow at the very least. Here, of course, snow comes maybe twice a century. I've been thinking of driving Li'l D out to find some. He was actually anxious about it on Mickey's Clubhouse, so I'd love to see that anxiety converted to wonder!

  2. I can just imagine his face! You should do it. What a wonderful childhood memory that would be--for you if not for him!
