Hygge, Snow Cream And Dance Tunes: Winter Weather Finds From The Archives
Many regions of the Old North State are blanketed in snow today. As North Carolinians dig out from the storm, we dug back through the archives for these five snow day finds:
- Embrace the cold and have some hygge! Some what? Hygge, pronounced "hooga," is the Danish word for cozy. But as this NPR Picture Show explains, it means so much more. Winter Doldrums Got You Down? Have Some 'Hygge'
- Whip up some snow cream. Not sure how? Listen as Chloe Tuttle of Williamston, N.C. gives her recipe tips to Weekend Edition host Scott Simon in "When Life Gives You Snow, Make Snow Cream."
- You know that magical moment after a power outage when the lights finally flicker on and cheers erupt? Ever wonder who is behind the scenes making that happen? Hear the experience of one lineman who travels the country on power restoration crews.
- Waiting for the snow plow to make it to your street? Listen to the story of one snow plow driver who carefully wielded his cold weather powers in a This American Life prologue.
- Cabin fever setting in? Just dance. Start a dance party with the Cabin Fever playlist from NPR music.
