A Snowy Day in the South

Snow? Really? In the south?

Yep, if we are lucky, once a year it snows. And then goes away the next day. Perfect! Only two days ago, I was wearing capris to work. Today? Boots, parka, and gloves.

We didn’t tell the little ones about the possibility of snow in case it didn’t really happen. They were happily engrossed with toys in the playroom (with the blinds shut) that they didn’t even realize it was snowing until two hours later. Very funny!

Glad they didn’t notice it earlier because for the next hour, all we heard was, “Can we go outside now??”

After lunch, rounding up of warm clothes and boots, we headed outside for some fun. Katie’s boyfriend came over to hang out; Alex took off to do stuff with friends. So I have no pictures of Alex at all but several of Catlan instead!

Here is a sampling from today:










The kids are hoping for a real snow day tomorrow......meaning school is cancelled. Would be nice but doesn't look very promising right now. Although, the roads are still wet and slushy in spots.

Freeze baby, freeze!!! Mama needs a day off from school!

Update at 9:15pm: Just got the official phone call. No school tomorrow!

LOL Snow day! Love it! We actually had 3 in a row in January but for ice...we had that run of -30 for two weeks then up in the 50's..it was awful!

We actually had spring teacher conferences and half days cancelled and an March inservice day moved to a regular day to make up! That NEVER happens in Alaska.
Glad you all had FUN!!

We FINALLY got snow tonight! We've had a few dustings and lots of ice, but no sledding snow until now. We are hoping for more while we sleep so we can make a snowman and take a few trips down The Hill. LOL. Glad y'all had some fun outdoors, too.

My kids have gotten used to the snow I guess, because they didn't ask to go out in it. They just want to know if they are out of school tomorrow. No, we have snow plows here.

Congrats on the day out of school tomorrow!

We've certainly had our share of snow this year in Michigan so I'm happy to see it's finally being shared with someone else.

Enjoy your snow day!

Jboo said...

YAY! So glad that you got a snow day! And maybe it will all be melted and gone tomorrow! I'm hoping ours is gone fast, but it will be here a bit longer than that!
