winter wonderland (lyn)

Like a little kid, I get up around 6:30 to see the snow, and like a teenaged kid, Alexander remains sleeping.  20 inches have fallen on Central Park.  Some newscaster describes the weather as a hurricane blizzard as last night's winds were fierce.  But this morning, all is calm and beautiful.

The sidewalks are impossible to negotiate, so the few people who have ventured out are walking in the middle of the street.  It’s not dangerous, though, since there are very few moving cars, and busses are not to be found.  The only one I see is stuck.

Yesterday Alexander finished the last of his 14 college applications.  All the errands I had planned to do today will have to wait until tomorrow. I have plenty of food and movies and books at home.  It’s a perfect day to cuddle in guilt-free.
