Enjoy the snow while it's here.

Snow, snow, snow!

It’s easy to grumble about the snow. If it comes down hard, fast, and heavy enough, it can impact our work and play schedules for days. Simple things like restocking the cupboards become challenging. Travel becomes an odyssey, and once you get to where you were going, you may find it closed.

Case in point, our Eaton Rapids, Michigan, Restaurant is closed today due to heavy snows.

Nonetheless, snow is also cause for celebration, for snow days are not without their merits. Parents home from work with their children home from school suddenly have time for snow ball fights and building snow forts. Such hard work must be followed by a steaming mug of hot chocolate and a cuddle with a book, preferably by a hot fire. What was going to be an ordinary day is suddenly transformed into something magical, the memories of which will warm hearts for years.
