Talk is the hallmark of a snow day in Carolina. It starts early, in ripples, and at some point, the weather’s all you’re likely to hear about. We just want to be prepared. And surely, on some level, we’re looking forward to a day off. Under the right circumstances — weekday, short to-do list, stocked fridge, power stays on, everyone’s home together — a snow day is a gift, a reprieve, a pass to do nothing except enjoy the quiet.— Katie Saintsing
