The flakes did begin falling, gently, soon and continued falling, softly, throughout the day. It certainly did not seem to be as scary or as intense as the forecasters had predicted. In fact, it seemed to pale in comparison to last week's Nor'easter! As I draft this at 7 PM, the snow is still falling softly and gently, as if it were being respectful of this new season.
There will likely be many, tomorrow morning, perhaps already, complaining about using more of Spring Break for a snow storm that seemed to fizzle; however, I for one, am very glad I do not have to make "the call" that puts many parents in child care crisis and causes many teachers with spring break plans heartache! Perhaps my own perspective is softened because this is likely to be my "last call" or perhaps I realize that making "the right call" every time is only possible for "Monday Morning Quarterbacks."
I'm really glad I enjoyed this Spring Break-kind of gently snowy day!
