Snow Day Pictures

1. 23.0 inches Jan 26-27, 1967

2. 21.6 inches Jan 1-3, 1999

3. 20.2 inches Feb. 1-2, 2011

So, I have now experienced the top 3 biggest snow falls in Chicago history (although I was too young to remember the first one…)

Today, Wednesday, February 02, 2011, the College is closed for business and classes.

There is a three-foot drift outside my front door.

And the sun has broken through as if to proclaim, “Look, Mortal, upon my handiwork!”

I appreciate this about Nature. This way it has of bringing all of our “busyness” to a halt. Instantly changing our priorities for us. Today my routine switched From…To:

FROM rushing to work TO sleeping until the time I am normally at my desk

FROM pouring cold milk onto granola TO making waffles from scratch

FROM updating my task list TO taking pictures of the snowy views from my window

FROM writing web stories for the College TO blogging about my “snow day”

FROM greeting my family at the end of a long day at work TO spending the day with them
