Playing in The Snow

We’ve been through the quotes this weekend—everything from “Do you want to build a snowman?”…



…to “This isn’t a thaw—this is spring!”




So, you get the photos this week. Consider it proof—yes it really does snow where we live, even if it's only once a year. Most of you probably knew that, though.



 As it turned out, the rumors of spring were greatly exaggerated. We also didn't make a snowman, because our snow was too dry at first, and then too wet to be much fun once it started to melt. Still, we were able to drive again yesterday, after four days of icy roads.

Oddly enough, the squirrels disappeared during that time as well. 


Don’t worry, though—they’re back now. I spotted one asleep on a branch this morning. (I only know he was asleep because he was curled up on the branch motionless for about ten minutes—how often does that happen?—before he woke up and scampered off, as squirrels do.)

Have a great week, and drive safe if you're someplace that still has snow!

We're choosing to not drive because, after 9" this morning, there's another 10 expected this afternoon. There's an igloo in the works and another shovelling out on the horizon. Glad you got snow!

Oh, wow! That sounds crazy. It also sounds like your family is taking advantage of the weather. Stay safe, Amy!
