Let It Go! Let It Snow! I Want to Build a Snowman

Dear Kid,

This is what it looks like outside (sort of). Stay safe in the snow! DearKidLoveMom.comWe finally have what amounts to Real Snow. The forecasters are predicting 4-7 inches.

Translation for people in Cincinnati: Time to freak out.

Translation for people in Boston: A small flurry.

Translation from Dad: Go put on another layer!

Translation from my cold toes: (unprintable)

Everything here closed down early last night. And by “everything” I mean “my work.” They also closed schools (for today I mean. Yesterday was shut for Prez Day so weather wasn’t an issue.

I am seriously contemplating doing the groundhog thing. By which I mean having taken a look around, I may hide under the covers for the next several weeks.

The grocery stores (I have heard) are out of milk and cereal and bread. Why no one buys emergency supplies of chocolate is beyond me. Maybe that’s the one thing they already have a good supply of?

Rumor has it there are human popsicles on your campus (seriously that phrase cracks me up). Stay warm kiddo!

Love, Mom

Snow and the Coolest Innovation of the Year

Dear Kid,

Learning and innovation go hand in hand. DearKidLoveMom.comWe had the first snow of the year fall this week. The snow that fell on the streets melted quickly, but enough stuck to the grass and plants to make everything look frosted and wintery. Booker had a marvy time bounding through the drifts (there was enough snow to cover his paws if he sank into the grass a little), his ears flapping behind him, and a big dopey grin on his little face.

The asparagus plants were particularly pretty. The snow had mostly melted and refrozen and their fern-like fronds were outlined in ice. Pur-ty. I forgot to take my camera with me on my early walk and by the time I went out later the magic was gone. You’ll have to use your imagination.

Christmas music has started on Sirius XM (in case you’re interested). I love Christmas music, but turning it on this early in the season seems a bit much to me. Mostly because there is a limit to how much Christmas music I can love, and starting this early means I will hit my limit well before we December 25th. Especially because Sirius XM and I don’t always agree on what is Good Christmas Music. On the other hand, it seems to fit with the snowy weather. Let it snow, let it snow.

Meanwhile, in Sweden two women have invented what is possibly the coolest item of the year: the invisible bike helmet. Watch the video. Seriously, trust me, you need to watch the whole thing. Really.

Unfortunately, the invisible helmets aren’t yet approved in the US–and the cost is almost $600, so don’t add it to your gift list any time soon. But, one of these days….

Have a crash-free day.

Love, Mom
