Snow Day
Snow Day: A Novel | Billy Coffey
18 posts | 1 read
In this debut novel, Peter is a simple man who lives by a simple truth--a person gains strength by leaning on his constants. To him, those constants are the factory where he works, the family he loves, and the God who sustains him. But when news of job cuts comes against the backdrop of an unexpected snowstorm, his life becomes filled with far more doubts than certainties. With humor and a gift for storytelling, Billy Coffey brings you along as he spends his snow day encountering family, friends, and strangers of his small Virginia town. All have had their own battles with life's storms. Some have found redemption. Others are still seeking it. But each one offers a piece to the puzzle of why we must sometimes suffer loss, and each one will help Peter find a greater truth--our lives are made beautiful not by our big moments, but our little ones.

Four days a week I work at a medical office. My fifth day is spent at a winery. not a bad way to end the week except, we're under a winter storm warning for up to three quarters of inch of ice accumulation followed by snow. My day will be a DNF 🙄 Finishing up inventory and a half a glass of wine. going to be closing early and heading home to my books🤷📚❄️🥶

Mollyanna Stay safe! 2w
TheHeartlandBookFairy @Mollyanna Thank you! All of the trees are now wearing a coat of ice, sidewalks and decks are icing over as our cars. The roads weren't too bad but, they're probably next to be iced over. I made it home safely and I'm going to spend the evening snuggled up with the fur kids and my books and another glass of wine 📖 🍷☺️ Enjoy your weekend! 2w
Mollyanna Sounds nice and cozy after being out in the ice! Enjoy! 2w

Snow day here in southwestern BC. Staying home today for the most part; went out this morning to pick up medication that I had forgotten to pick up.

JanuarieTimewalker13 Perfectly cozy reading weather!! Your photo just reminded me that I want tea. Lol 2w

melissajayne @JanuarieTimewalker13 didn‘t get any reading done, at least not until this point. 2w
JanuarieTimewalker13 That‘s ok, sometimes it‘s good just to go with the flow. 2w
melissajayne @JanuarieTimewalker13 I ended up watching the same documentary 3 or 4 times and I had the tape that is holding up my eye glasses frame together come off. I did read a couple of chapters of Order of the Phoenix and Call of the Wild before I headed to bed. 2w
JanuarieTimewalker13 Omg, The Call Of The Wild ripped my heart out. Great book❤️ 2w

As a native Arizonan, I've only experienced snow days a couple of times since I moved away, and they were all literally the greatest thing that's ever happened to me. Books are a necessity, obviously, and also Netflix (fingers crossed that the power is on). Also everything I'd need to bake something really delicious - I'm thinking some kind of bun, right? Homey but special. Cardamom buns. That's it.

Then impractical me always stocks up on library books and tea, just in case. 😉

Current situation, so it‘s reading again today! There is a driveway there, somewhere. At least the roads have been plowed! It‘s enough snow to be annoying, but it‘s not too bad. Still, I‘m continuing my hibernation. 😉❄️👍🏽

We didn‘t get nearly as much snow as they had called for but it is icy and freezing out! I made a big pot of potato soup and plan on books, snuggles and layers! Impromptu readathon anyone?

BookishMarginalia Check out #WinterStormReadathon continuing through midnight tonight. It‘s the inspiration of the fabulous @MrBook and @BookBabe 👍🏼 12mo

#HelloThursday #OnFriday #DayLate

1. It doesn‘t get me out of work so I find snow useless
2. Sometimes, mostly it just ice.
3. Cozy movies, food and books.
4. Staying inside? I used to love a good snowball fight.
