Snow Day!

Snow DayAs I said on my Facebook page today, I don’t care how old you are. When the phone rings at 6:00 AM, on a Monday no less, telling you it’s a snow day – you get excited!

I grew up in upstate New York. It snows in winter. We all know this, and we live with it. It doesn’t mean all of us like it! Sure, the trees look pretty with a new frock of fresh snow. But have you ever tried to maneuver a wheelchair through eight inches of the powdery fluff? And heavy wet snow is even worse.

Why don’t you move? Nothing is forcing you to stay in New York!

I hear these questions often. I stay because of family, and because New York provides me with a generous personal assistance program which I require to live independently.

And, if I’m being honest, because I like the occasional snow day.
