Here, as was the case in much of the Midwest, blizzard conditions have created an almost unprecedented amount of snow, wind, and even thunder and lightning. (Umm... "thunder snow" anyone?)
As a result, nearly every single business, school, courthouse, library, and grocery store is closed.

Unfortunately, I'm a bit too old to take advantage of the "no school" aspect of our city-wide snow day, but that hasn't stopped me from enjoying the fact that we're stuck inside. Because, let's be honest, what's better than sitting around in your PJs, watching the news, and instant messaging your 16-year-old brother all day?
Oh yes: scrumptious vegan muffins.*
*No offense, JW, I always love talking to you more than anything else!
Thus, I finally made the Blueberry Lemon Muffin recipe from "The Joy of Vegan Baking" that I've had bookmarked for eons.
