Bring it on!

The weather forecast keeps changing. At first we were expecting 4-6 inches of snow yesterday and today. Now we're expecting up to 21 inches by tomorrow night.

I got up this morning at 6:30 am. When I took the dog out, it was not snowing and we barely got a skiff last night. I saw my husband off to work, turned the radio on and settled down with a Sudoku and cup of coffee. Then I heard it: Schools were cancelled! I was scratching my head because it wasn't even snowing. Then I looked outside. In a mere half hour it went from nothing to snow so thick I could barely see across the street.

Thomas woke up while Bob was still at home and talked to us from the comforts of his warm, cozy bed. He threw out that he hoped schools were called off so that the poor public-schooled children could have a day off. Gee, how generous of him. (Think there was an ulterior motive there? I usually follow the public school's snow days.) He promptly went back to sleep. And I let him.

We will have school today, but we will definitely go into unschooling mode. I think a batch of cookies is in order. Maybe some hot chocolate, too. Today seems like a great day to curl up on the couch, snuggle, and read a good book or two.

I only wish my Rainbow order was would have been great to play our new games. Those new orders never arrive soon enough, though.

Wow, that is a bunch of snow. We were supposed to get some last nght too but it didn't happen. I hope you enjoy it!

All we have is a low pressure system parked over the four corners bringing wind!

So, here it's cold and windy.

I can't begrudge you the snow, too much, though. We got our share every weekend between December 20th and January 30!

I am jealous! I am still waiting for a big storm to hit here. We've only had about 8 inches all season!! Enjoy, and snuggle up!
