I was supposed to meet up with two teacher friends today for lunch, but our rendezvous is cancelled because of all the snow. Which means I can stay in my flannel nightgown all morning and WRITE! First, I've got to work on that newspaper story about the place that recycles mattresses -- then I'm going back to the George River project. In fact, the snowstorm has inspired me. Yesterday morning, we had thunder and lightning in addition to heavy snow -- I didn't even know that particular combination was possible -- so I'm going to work that into my story today. I was thinking that because I am writing a story set so far in the north (Nunavik, Quebec), it's as if the weather gets to be a separate character! Okay then, off I go to get to work. It's certainly a lovely day to be a writer who works at home. Hope your day is cozy, too!
Lucky you to have had the chance to take advantage of the snow day to write!! (I had a visit to the Canadian Spage Agency this morning) I think my paperboy took the day off, since we didn't receive the Gazette today. I found the article about parking spots and snow really interesting, given that we don't have that problem in the West Island, but also because I can say that my English teacher wrote an article for the Gazette and one of the people interviewed was my Math teacher!
