A Girl Can Hope

18 inches.
It's what I'm hoping will fall
sometime this month.

It hasn't yet.

All winter long,
temperatures dropped,
precipitation falls.
Freezing rain.

Limited amounts of all.

But I still hope, and even ask for more.

It's selfish.
I know.
Many people would be effected by any amount of snowfall,
and 18 inches pretty much shuts down this part of the eastern corridor.

It would be a snow day.
That's what I want.
A snow day.
With 18 inches of snow.

No, I don't care what the groundhog said.
My calendar still says winter.
Six more weeks of it to be exact.
With 56 more days of possible snow weather,
a girl can still hope.

Or, maybe not.

  1. Oh friend - I have to admit I am hoping for Spring and the warm temps that will arrive with it :) I've had enough snow for a lifetime!

    My girls, on the other hand....would totally welcome it!

  2. i want a snow day too...we've seen a few flakes that didn't even stick!! :)

  3. Job 37:6 "He says to the snow, 'Fall to the ground'. I wish God would speak to those 18 inces of snow, too, Dorie.


Thank you for sharing your thoughts.
