To me Slice of Life is all about what is in the forefront of our minds for a particular day or time period. Right now, the item commanding the most attention is the snow. I know that there are people out there who love the snow. They enjoy winter sports, they like building snowmen and going sledding, they look forward to the promise of school getting canceled due to snow. I am not one of those people. I can't stand the cold and only enjoy the snow when it falls on Christmas morning. I would be happy with one snowfall a year which then melts and disappears until the next Christmas. However, living in Ohio means many, many, many snowfalls and very cold temperatures. I dislike bundling up to go outside, I cringe when I have to drive through snow and ice, and the lack of sunshine is enough to make me want to hibernate until it is Spring.
I'm hoping that now that it is March, we are seeing our last snowfalls. We have used up all of our calamity days at school and the students have gotten a terrible case of cabin fever. If you live in a climate that gets little or no snowfall, I envy you. To give you an idea of my current snow reality, here are a couple of pictures of the view from my living room right now.
