Snow Day

It started to snow just after breakfast on Saturday morning and continued on all day and evening. Sunday found us outside shovelling snow along with everyone else. People were laughing and talking back and forth as we all cleared snow on this bright sunny day. Neighbors helping neighbors. I like that. We didn't get much in terms of accumulation but there were drifts that had to be shovelled. We got enough to keep one girl quite happy. She played outside several times that day. Supper never tasted so good to her. She ate double portions of chicken and broccoli and even saved room for a slice of pie.

The temperature turned colder and will be for much of the week but oh, you just cannot beat the sparkly snow twinkling in the sunlight and the clear blue skies. It is a thing of beauty that not everyone gets to see. The weather is supposed to warm up by the weekend and the snow will soon be gone. We will be sure to enjoy it while it lasts.

And, do you realize how utterly difficult it is to get a decent picture of a moving target? Of course you do.

Glad your girl got to have some fun snow time. Owen built a tiny snowman a few days ago but it's melted into a lump of snow.

Yay, you had some snow! I hope it lasts for awhile. :)

We had rain all night last night - so bizarre to hear rain and thunder in February.
