February 19, 2003: No-Go Snow Show
I was just too pleased with myself. I was going to be in an art show! Granted, just an Art League student show, nothing fancy, but still, you know, it had been since high school that someone hung up something creative I did for other people to come see, and it was fun then. So when Jimmy called me last week to say the student show was coming up, and my crocus panel was pretty darn okay for something done in a beginner class, and would I like to have it in the show, I was all over it.
Receiving for the show was to have been on Monday. On Monday, there were sixteen inches of snow on the ground, and while it's possible I could have located my car underneath its thick blanket of powdery white, it would have been quite out of the question to drive it anywhere.
Today I called the Art League to ask what the new plans for the show were. It turns out it's been cancelled entirely.
I fucking hate snow.
On the bright side, this means that there is nothing stopping me from whisking my boy away with me to Georgia, weekend after next. I can't even tell you how badly I need to spend a few days in a place where weather like this simply does not happen. The last winter I lived in Atlanta, it snowed exactly once, beginning at seven a.m., stopping a couple of hours later, melting around lunchtime. I was doing freelance work from home at the time and had fallen into the habit of going to bed around dawn. By the time I awoke on the day of the "storm," all the evidence was gone, and I would have been none the wiser but for the excited post-melt chatter of neighbors and newscasters.
Still in peaceful dreams I see
The road leads back to you
