The first snow day ever...

In my kids memory anyway. This is the first time we've had a good snow in years and man are they excited. Thankfully I am "non-essential" so I get a snow day too! We are getting ready to bundle up and head out to the park for sledding.

I was amazed at all my friends on facebook who could not wait and ran out to play in the dark while it was coming down at a pace of about an inch an hour. My parents always made us wait until it let up or stopped. Must be a truly southern thing. I remember having snow pants and boots. My kids don't. They're going out in layered pants and sneakers to play in 7 inches.

My cross-country skis are at my Moms and I sure wish they were here. Maybe I'll get another snow day tomorrow, drop them at Dads and go see what I remember. I want to play too.

    Isn't weather amazing. Think about it... all that snow falling from Alabama and Georgia all the way up to Massachusetts. Yikes!

  2. Heyyyyyy, i'm so glad I could share my snow with you!!! LOL. However, i don't have much fun playing in it. But I can remember being a kid and playing for HOURS regardless of the temperature. As an adult, I can't STAND being cold!! Hope you had a blast today!!

  3. If you lived where I live (Chicago) you wouldn't be nearly as excited about the snowy weather in March. :)

    I can't WAIT for the snow to be's supposed to get to 50 degrees here later this week--hooray!! :)
