I moved from Los Angeles to Santa Fe in 2006, after years of mild New Mexico winters. The winter of 2006-07 was the first of five with heavy snowfall, winters when my car got stuck in snowdrifts and my kids got to sled down hills in Glorieta.
The kids have the day off school today, but I have to go to work. Snow days make things…interesting, for working parents.
Snow days are one of the many things that reinforce for us, again and again, that life is not predictable, and we are not in control. On the contrary. Life will always throw us curveballs – or snowballs.
