I'm nuetral to the whole snow issue. I really don't mind one way or the other if we have snow. While I don't mind a day home with the kids to veg and watch movies, it's not going to affect my running or much else of my life. A few years ago when we had 14" inches of snow I didn't stay put for days on end. Yes, I stayed home during the brunt of the storm, but then ventured out and carried on with life as usual. As pointed out by another friend, even if we had received the predicted amount, it's really not that much. It's not like we live in Alaska or Antarctica, just deal with it people.
Based on a gut feeling that had nothing to do with any meteorological knowledge I had come to my own conclusion that we would get 5-6 inches which would keep the kids home from school. So I planned accordingly with lots of movies and extra baking goodies to spend the day at home with them. I figured it would be nice enough by late afternoon to take them to the Y and for me to get a run in. Instead it was morning as usual with hauling the kids to school.
I decided to still relax today. I'm still in my jammies. I've watched a movie. I've baked 6 dozen mint chocolate chip oatmeal muffins. I plan to set out for a run this afternoon.

So bummer, my day didn't turn out quite like I was expecting (mostly just sans kids though). The snowstorm was a fail, but I'm not complaining either. What are you gonna do? I just laugh & be amused. Life is funny sometimes. Just go with the flow & roll with the punches.
