It was a day filled with snow…gorgeous, softly falling, continuously falling, never-stopping-for-hours-in-fact-it’s-still-falling-now kind of snow.
It was no easy day.
Stories and images of cars stuck, commuters stranded, snow banks piling up.
But, there are also incredible stories.
Here’s one – Fran Lebowitz is performing tonight at one of Toronto’s concert halls. She left NYC, by car, at 5:00am this morning, to make her appearance. The show must go on!
And, there are un-named heroes who have been driving snow ploughs and salt trucks, clearing streets for hours…Doing what they do, and doing it so well!
And, stories of kindnesses – teenagers shovelling the driveways for those who can’t, appointments and meetings graciously postponed, check-in’s on those who are ‘shut-in’ by the snow.
And, then, there’s the joy – kids tobogganing, hot chocolate after school, working from home for some!
It was a full day, not an easy day. But, a day full of beauty – full of grace – too.
