A mere couple weeks after Snowpacalypse: The Enblizzarding, those of us in the Northeast US are getting Snowpacalypse: Part Deux (Now with More Sleet!). In NYC schools are closed, offices are empty and even the usually packed subway is nearly deserted.
Last night I sat in my living room with the lights out and watched the snow coming down outside. It looked like someone was shaking out a featherbed, and the wind was howling. I was perfectly happy to be curled up on the sofa, eating lasagna and ice cream, and watching the Olympics with a visiting not-boyfriend. The last Snowpacalypse found me skipping work to lie in bed, reading Game Change (awesome book!) and drinking endless cups of cocoa while the wind did its Wuthering Heights thing outside. Maybe I just like an excuse to be lazy, but I am a big fan of weather-induced hibernation. Other mammals do it…and maybe they’re onto something!
What’s your favorite form of hibernation? A day in your pajamas? Books? DVDs? Nomz? Catching up on sleep?
