The alarm clock went off this morning at its usual time, but neither of us were interested in waking up. I had to use the toilet though, so after pressing snooze I stumbled up and into the bathroom. Reentering the bedroom, I glanced blearily out the window and saw white. White! What about Spring? I wasn't wearing my glasses, but I could tell there was definitely whiteness the ground. A light dust covering almost everything. I crawled back into bed and mumbled, "It snowed."

"mmm.." was the only reply I got, so I closed my eyes and snuggled up. We both snoozed for awhile longer, in denial about the end of the weekend, avoiding the morning's reality as long as possible.

When the alarm clock had beeped its way into our peacefulness a few more times, we finally accepted that we had to awaken. He gave me a kiss, and I told him again, "It snowed last night." His response was simply not as interested or distraught as I wanted it to be, so I elaborated, "We have to shovel now."

This elicited more of the reaction I was looking for. His eyes widened. "Really??" he asked, actually listening this time, looking surprised and concerned.

"No." I smiled in satisfaction, climbed out of bed, and got up to face the day.
