Snow Day, Writing, and Workshop

Today we have an unexpected snow day. Yes, there was snow, so you may wonder why we are surprised. Many schools around us delayed for two hours, but both our schools just said no.

I can only think that it must have been worse in the city. Because out here things are kind of clean and melting off now. Karmically, that makes up for at least one of the days that they should have cancelled last year.

It is theoretical we could have another snow day Monday, as it looks like we are going to get some more Weather. I don’t want it, but it could happen.


But, never one to look a gift horse in the proverbial kisser, it is my plan to write at a feverish pitch for the rest of the day. After all, we got up at 4:30 am, and Bryon did all the scooping, while I did the indoor morning stuff. We thought we were going to have to drive in, you see. When it became apparent we weren’t, we slept for a while, got up, and cleaned off the inch that had accumulated after the big snow removal. What I’m saying is that I don’t have a lot planned for the day, and there’s no reason not to sprint. After all, the comp essays can come with me in the car when we go to get our taxes done tomorrow. This? Not so much.


And, with the kind assistance of Kirkwood, I will be attending Paradise Lost 3 in San Antonio April 11-14. Jay Lake was going to be there, and that was the icing on the cake.

Okay. Did I say I was writing?
