Cold As Ice


There is news being plastered all over the internet of the major blizzard that could slam the East Coast today.  It sounds pretty torrential, and not to be a pessimist, but I take everything the weather casters say with a grain of salt.  Regardless, I haven’t always lived in the desert.  My childhood was spent in the Midwest, and we had our fair share of snow storms.  I even remember one time in college visiting my parents, and being snowed in with them for 5 days.  I love my parents, but man – 5 days with the people who invented the buttons that get pushed is a little much!  I will say, we made the best of it.  That was the time we all learned how to make a pasta sauce recipe that an Italian friend had passed along to us. Kudos to my Mom for keeping a stocked pantry!

It’s funny how your perspective changes when you get older though.  On New Year’s Eve this year, it snowed in Tucson, and I was absolutely giddy with joy.  It was truly one of the happiest ways I’ve ever started a New Year – all because of the snow I loathed as a child.  Just look how beautiful it was!


My song of the day is for all the East Coasters and what may be.  Please be safe, but make the best of it, because sometimes snow days are good for the soul.  Here’s some Foreigner to get you in the mood.  Get all snuggly and warm and make sure your pantry is stocked.  😉


About tucsonsongstress

I am a music teacher for children ages 6-weeks-old - 8th grade. I am also a camp songleader and a Jewish music specialist with and without my husband who is known as Shabbat Scott. We love singing with people of all ages all over Tucson. My "song of the day" idea originally started by playing music challenges on Facebook. I loved choosing songs, and my friends seemed to love reading and listening to my choices. I have decided to continue a daily blog (or as daily as I can manage) and tell you all some stories through some songs that have touched me either in wonderful ways or by annoying the heck out of me. Hope you all enjoy this blog! Happy singing!
