Fingers Crossed

It's colder today than yesterday, and cloudy.

And now an Accu-Weather alert has come out saying we might get some snow tonight into tomorrow.  Woo-hoo!  I hope we get some, even enough to delay school.  It would just be fun.  We haven't gotten much snow this year; one little storm with about 4-6".  The kids would like some.  Me, too.  Especially because we're planning on teaching them to shovel well enough to clear the sidewalks and driveway.

But I don't want a big storm because we're going to the opera tomorrow night.  It's a Christmas present for Mama--her favorite, La Boheme.   I've seen it before, my first year in NYC.  I had dreamed of the opera since seeing Moonstruck, where that opera and Lincoln Center figure prominently.  And it is lovely.  So, we're going.  And we're taking the kids.  Sure it's three hours, four acts, in Italian, of a story they don't know.  But opera is glorious and magnificient and BIG.  And there are caption machines in the seats.  So at the very least it will be interesting.

Wish us luck on both counts!
