An Open Letter...

Dear Maryland,

While I refuse to call you home (because someday I will live near family again), I much appreciate your silliness when it comes to snow.

Even though I spent 23 years of my life thinking that there was no amount of snow that could close down school, Maryland never ceases to amaze me. Of course there is a big difference between the budgets for snow removal in Michigan and Maryland, so I can sort of understand the problem, but I thoroughly enjoy the silliness that is sure to ensue when there is more than a half an inch of the white stuff on the ground.

I drove to the grocery store today at around noon and none of the fast food restaurants were open. I was surprised to see the grocery store open, in fact. And the cashier at the grocery store who just couldn't believe that I didn't plan ahead for the blizzard and get my bread and milk before the snow? She's just silly. Six inches does not equal a blizzard. But, again.. I appreciate your silliness because I got a day off of school and a two hour delay tomorrow.

So, thank you Maryland... thanks for the silly snow day.

ohhh you live in Maryland? I may need some advice from you soon - it looks like that is where we will be stationed next!

We had a "snow" day yesterday too and there wasn't even actual snow on the ground...I spent the day shopping and running errands! I love it when the people in charge freak out!
