When considering the spirit of school snow days, I thought back to my childhood. If the winter weather forecast for the following day called for large quantities of snow, we hoped that snow would appear so school would be canceled.

A snow god would have given us a focus for our hopes, so I was happy to create one. Itís too late for me, but maybe todayís children can benefit!

The few words of a haiku have a big job to present an idea and engage readers. It is challenging, yet satisfying, to imagine a story that fits into 17 syllables. I am honored that my haiku was chosen to represent a spirit of the Syracuse area to display for residents and visitors to contemplate.

Blizzard, god of snow
decrees, "let there be snow banks,
if you get my drift."
