I can see the Waste Management Landfill from my back door

I can see the Landfill from my front door. On a good day? I can smell it too.

The Waste Management Landfill or ‘dirty diaper mountain’, as my kids refer to it, is growing daily.

My family enjoys summers at the Penn Warner Club, where we  fish and camp in warmer months. In recent years we have found these activities less enjoyable as the air in Tullytown is thick and uneasy to breathe. All thanks to the Waste Management Landfill.

Levittown Mom: The Snow Day Let-Down

Snow days off from school are always a welcome treat.

Who can resist an unexpected day off from the daily routine, completely stuck in the house?

It’s the perfect excuse to stay in pajamas, build a fire, bake cookies, and prepare a  home cooked meal.

I enjoy snow days so much more now that my kids are able to climb into snow gear, gloves, hats, boots all on their own. They even know how to take it all off by themselves. I stand in the doorway, wait for the basket to be filled with wet clothes, and cart them all off to the dryer, to get them nice and toasty for their next venture out into the blizzard. It’s a small price to pay for an hour of quiet as they play  in the snow covered yard.

I have fond memories of snow days back in the 70′s: lying in bed, listening to he crackle of WBCB, patiently waiting for our school to be announced as closed for the day. We would wait as they announced the name of every school, knowing ours would be next, excited that we could roll over and go back to sleep, yet we never did-  as we were so excited to have a day off, to play outside in the white stuff.

Now, school closing alerts can be text-ed direct to parents cell phones, or found scrolling underneath the morning news, even accessed on a school website.

It’s just not the same.

But the excited feeling, of having an entire day to build igloos, and eat icicles ,it’s exactly the same as I remember.

And? even nicer viewed from a warm house.

That was exactly what my children envisioned yesterday, after predictions of 2 to 4 inches of snow filled their heads. Yet, much to their surprise, they awoke Thursday morning to business as usual. No snow day, no day off. Off to school you go.

They’ve got some nerve. After 5 unexpected Hurricane days, the last thing they needed was to stay home again!

What’s your Levittown Snow Day memory?
