Today’s photo prompt was GUILTY PLEASURE. As a teacher, I love a good snow day once in awhile so I guess my guilty pleasure is admitting that I enjoy it as much as the kids do! Although this time, I didn’t have to wear my pajamas inside out and backwards or sleep with a spoon under my pillow to make it happen. I didn’t need to this time because with this storm’s anticipated totals and wind gusts, we actually got the call last night! That rarely happens. No alarms to set, no early morning phone call to wake us.
In the end, we probably wound up with about eight inches. Not too much, but just enough. The wind has been brutal though. Normally on a snow day, you would find me outside taking lots of photos but other than shoveling and walking Emmy Lou (who hates it) I have not ventured outside much. The sun did peek out a bit for awhile but not for very long. During that time a huge flock of tiny birds filled my backyard. They were so noisy you could hear them above the wind. I knew they’d have trouble finding food today so I broke up some crackers and threw them into the snow.
I tried hard to get photos of them but couldn’t get close enough without scaring them away. They weren’t pretty colors and blended into the branches, but they were super cute. It was too cold to go out onto the lawn to try for more so this is the best I could do.
As of now, school is on for tomorrow. I wonder if we will have a delayed opening…
