Snow Day

“Sunshine is delicious, rain is refreshing, wind braces us up, snow is exhilarating; there is really no such thing as bad weather, only different kinds of good weather.” - John Ruskin

Isn’t it amazing how certain weather conditions can bring back amazing memories? The first sunny day in spring evokes visions of newly bloomed (or planted) Central Park tulips. The first days of crisp fall air bring up memories of crunchy leaves and Pumpkin Spice Lattes. The dewy days of summer somehow instantly smell like salty air and backyard barbecues. And winter blizzards bring back my first days in New York, curled up in my ninth-floor dorm room watching piles of snow takeover the streets of the Lower East Side (eating Doughnut Plant doughnuts, if I might add). 

I may complain during the “feels like freezing” nights, and the “scorching summer” days, but in reality, there are no bad weather days. Even the rainiest of mornings can turn into the most inspiring afternoons. Even the most sweat-inducing summer days can lead to dewy nights on Brooklyn rooftops that I’d never want to forget. Even icy mornings braving the snow can turn into work-fueled hours at my computer, watching the gloomy white scenes slowly fade to dark.
