Midwest Snowstorm 2011

Alternate headlines include Snowmaggedon, Snowpocalypse, Snow-M-G, Blizaster, and Tsnownami, or fill in the blank with your own: _________.

As if you hadn’t already heard, the Midwest (among many other parts of the country) is currently being battered by a serious blizzard.  In fact, my city declared a Level 3 Snow Emergency yesterday afternoon, and almost every single school has been shut down…except one.

Suddenly, my snowy day weather song sounds ridiculously wimpy, as do the rest of my winter-themed tunes.  I mean, really — how do you do justice to a snowstorm of this magnitude?  Maybe you have a spectacular answer to that question, and if so, please share it in the comments.

Truth be told, I’d rather just concentrate on the fact that winter will be over in six weeks or so, regardless of what the groundhog says.  (Happy Groundhog Day, by the way!)  I keep thinking about the lovely spring songs I’ll soon be able to sing, not to mention the lovely weather that will accompany them.

But then I float back to reality, which at the present time involves lots and lots of snow, ice, and wind.  I hope you are keeping safe and warm today.  As Al Roker might ask: what’s the weather like in your neck of the woods?
