A "snowed in" day is a treat in a parish. Things are a little quieter and you get the chance to tackle things that you may not have had time for previously. For me, it was the day to do my income taxes. The rule is simple in my life (and in my head it reads like a law):
"Taxes shall be done on the first 'snow day' of the new year, following the time when I have my W-2 forms. If I get to April 1, and there have been no snowy days, then taxes must be done in the next available patch of three hours of open time."So the first part of yesterday, following the 7am Mass in which 2 "diehards" came out in the snow for Mass, was spent with my calculator and a pile of receipts from 2008.
Today, Tuesday, marks "Day 7" since Ash Wednesday. How is (are) the resolution(s) going?
