Flashback Friday: Snow Days

I never had a snow day as a teen.  Or ever, actually.  See, I'm a Floridian.  Born and raised.  But as I look at photos of snow blanketing the rest of the US, I can't help but feel like I missed out a little.  Sure, my high school closed for hurricanes, but that's just not the same.

Hurricane days either were spent boarded up inside pitch-blackened houses, or taking up or pulling down said boards over your windows.  If you lost power, it got hot pretty quickly. And then you had no TV or internet either.  Yeah, those days were the pits.  I know this... still, I'm convinced that a snow day is totally better.

In my mind, snow days are this utopia of stay-at-home goodness that involve frosty noses and hot cocoa.  Never mind the reality that it's probably too cold to be outside and too frozen to get to your friends to hang out.  You've got heat, power, a roaring fire.  It's got to be great!

So will someone please dish to me?  Was I deprived?  If I had a 17 year old MC stuck home on a snow day, what would she be doing?
