Yesterday reminded me of a Ray Bradbury short story called, “All Summer In a Day.” If you haven’t read it, it’s one of those stories that stays with you. I haven’t thought about it in a long time; but yesterday, my life imitated it. Well, not exactly like the story, but the premise was similar.
The thing is, I’ve been waiting for a very long time to see snow, which is an infrequent guest where I live. I stayed up all Saturday night waiting for it to arrive. At first light Sunday morning, I didn’t see anything falling — no rain, no snow, nothing. I guess I drifted off to sleep after that. The next thing I know, it’s after 1 PM.
The bottom line is that it snowed at our house for about an hour. We even had some accumulation on the grass and rooftops according to David. By the time I got up, though? It was gone. Nary a snowflake was to be seen.
Like the girl in Bradbury’s story, I missed it, closeted away…in my dreams.
Have you ever found your life imitating art (a picture, a movie, a book, a story, something else)? Please share. Also, are you Team Summer or Team Winter? I’ve always been Team Summer. Snow, though. It’s magical because it’s so rare around here. And I missed it.
Also, to Sherry at Feeling Funny — to answer your question from my last post: Jenny Lawson, The Bloggess, lives about three to four hours south of us. I’m not positive, but she probably got more snow than we did. Crazy, huh?

Hey. Thank you for putting my link in your nice little post. I totally go with the flow and am Team Whatever. Secret is to dress accordingly. Cold here now and as my mother used to say, “You need your socks AND underwear today!”
Team Whatever, eh? That might grow on me. Both socks AND underwear? That’s just evil cold! Also, that may explain a lot. Lol. Stay warm, my friend! Mona
You snooze you lose ! LOL

Children in my neighborhood , their parents and pets frolicking in the snow. So much fun while I sat in my pajamas with a hot cup of coffee enjoying the short festival of snow. It was a beautiful sight to see and you …….you missed it . 🌨❄️❄️❄️😱😢
Wow, Jan. You really know how to pour salt into a wound and make it really hurt! LOL. No worries. I’ll be ready for the next one…if we have a next one this year. 🙁 I’m glad that you got to enjoy it, though! 🙂 Mona
