Snow Day!

Much to my surprise, we woke up to snow today. My son, who, being 5 is always on the lookout for these things, came running into my bedroom yelling "It's snowing, it's snowing!" So of course, we turn on the TV just to verify, that yes, it is actually snowing, and find out that our school district is 2hrs late.

We had less than one inch of snow and now, by early afternoon, it is almost all gone.

But nevertheless, we got all dressed up and went outside. My son loves to shovel snow, so we cleared the whole driveway. Our neighbors didn't touch theirs, and what do you know, it's all gone now anyway. Well, at least it beats going to the gym!

My daughter was convinced that there were fish in the puddles of melted snow near the road, and kept wanting to look for fishies. Problem is, we live on a state highway, so that was a constant battle trying to keep a toddler out of the path of speeding trucks.

But we had a good time, and came in for a lunch of Spaghetti-Os and hot dogs all happy and tired. And isn't that what a snow day is all about?
