A thundering heard of elephants woke up, put on slippers (not boots), ran through the house screaming snow day, then ran straight into the front yard at 6:27am. So much for sleeping in when the snow lies quiet on the ground, the cars stay in drives and the schools stay shuttered. When silence should blanket us like spring leaves around nestS and nature is frozen still, I heard “hey guys, come on over” at full Finn volumn. But what the heck, come on, everyone is awake and there is always coffee. Never silence but always coffee.
