Cold and dreary. That’s how the morning started out. With the TV on in the living room turned to the local news program, a fierce pot of coffee going in the kitchen and me and all the kids bundled up in the warmest blankets I could find, we sat and waited, and listened. Was our school district going to close today, or not? As more and more inches of snow kept bombarding down outside, I had practically already made up my own mind about staying in, whether work or school was cancelled or not. No amount of rock salt sprayed on the roads could make up for the complete lack of visibility of the blizzard. Remembering back just a month ago to the two feet of snow that got dumped on us over the course of a few hours, I couldn’t help but recall how exuberant the kids were over the “snow day.” An unexpected day off from school to do fun activities that did not involve treacherous journeys across town couldn’t help but be fun for a second time.
Edinburgh is the capital of Scotland and a city full of history and charm. Many people love to visit in the summer so that they can attend the popular annual Edinburgh Festival, that lasts for over four weeks beginning in August of each year.
The most popular event of the Edinburgh Festival is the Edinburgh Fringe, which is the largest performing arts festival in the world. The different types of performances at the Fringe include theater, comedy, dance and music and many well-known performers partake in the festivities and perform to the crowds.
Millions of tourists visit Edinburgh during the summer and so it is important to look up at Premier Inn hotels in Edinburgh well in advance of planned travel, in order to get a good deal on a nice room.
