Snow Day!

As a result of Winter Storm Hecules (not sure how I feel about this naming winter storms thing), we all have a Snow Day! Off to go sledding—here is a picture from the last significant snow here in Philly a few years ago:

About the drunken cyclist

I have been an occasional cycling tour guide in Europe for the past 20 years, visiting most of the wine regions of France. Through this "job" I developed a love for wine and the stories that often accompany the pulling of a cork. I live in Houston with my lovely wife and two wonderful sons.

    I was reading about “Hercules” on another blog and I really thought they were being hyperbolic. Wow—when did they seriously start naming them???? Have fun sledding and stay warm.


  3. I’m sure this will make you homesick for A2 – we got pelted with the snow yesterday and were planning on skiing today. That got scrapped because of the current temp of -2.

    It looks like fun! I always enjoy going out into the snow with my kids. Yesterday we attempted with the hopes of making an upside down snowman. However, the snow wasnt wet enough, and it was 0 out and windy in Indiana……Even I have limitations!!!

    I do like naming the storms but Herculus sounded like a petrifying name for a storm! Happy snow day! 🙂


  6. The snow plow woke me up at 3:00 am. I was all set to be irritated, but when I looked out the window at the wonderland, I giddily thought instead about getting dressed and going out to make a snow angel. Common sense prevailed. I’m off to make one now, though. No hills anywhere nearby–the seacoast here is FLAT–or I’d be doing sledding!

    How about Winter Storm Whitey? Winter Storm Jack (as in Frost)? Have fun! Winter is to be enjoyed in all it’s horrible cold and discomfort. And always goes best with children.


  9. I remember that snow storm a couple of years ago. I think there were actually several in that year. Today makes a good snow day for me too.

    It does not help you when I tell you that Continental Europe has springlike temperatures, right?


  11. Ah, ya gotta love snow days!

    Fun to read all of these comments in sunny 68 degree Napa. Seriously, we REALLY need the rain and didn’t really feel like Christmas with the warm sunny weather. I know, boo hoo.


  14. Jeff,
    If they use up their allotment of snow in Philly, they can come and take as much of my snow as they desire as well. They are great at that age.


  15. Stay warm out there!
