The Philadelphia Outsider
Discovering Philadelphia from the Outside In

Today’s snowy commute to school leaves me with one thought:

“We had to walk in the snow two miles to get to school …  It was up hill both ways.”

The Soldier Boy’s walk isn’t up hill – and it isn’t even that far –but this is the kind of winter storm that would have closed my little elementary school down South for a whole week.  It’s piling up on top of a permafrost of snow already 4-6″ high. 

And as I wonder if I’ll ever see the ground again, I keep reminding myself:

Only 18 days ’til pitchers and catchers report.  Only 18 days ’til pitchers and catchers report.  Only 18 days ’til pitchers and catchers report.  Only 18 days ’til pitchers and catchers report. Only 18 days ’til pitchers and catchers report.  Only 18 days ’til pitchers and catchers report.  Only 18 days ’til pitchers and catchers report.  Only 18 days ’til pitchers and catchers report. Only 18 days ’til pitchers and catchers report.
