A Small Frolic in the Snow

It snowed like the dickens 3 days ago. We got a whole whopping 1/4-1/2" of snow. That's right, a HALF INCH of snow!

It was just enough to make the roads slick and treacherous with ice. Driving was a little scary, people were obnoxious. At the threat of snow here the locals go crazy, buying gas, milk, bread. I hate to think what they'd all do if they lived somewhere it actually snowed. Like Fargo.

Anyway 2 days ago the snow was still on the ground so when we got home from running a couple errands I let the kids play a little. They both really enjoyed dancing around in it, hearing it crunch. I tried to make a snowball to start a little tiny snowman on the steps butthe snow was too powdery and wouldn't stick together.

Both Jeremiah and Hannah seemed unsure if they liked it or not when they stuck their hands in it. Hannah yelled "Cold!" Jeremiah used his fingertip to draw a heart in the snow on our front walk because he loves me. :-)
It's almost all gone by today, though it hasn't gotten any warmer outside. We've walked most of it off the front yard by now LoL!


  1. You should see what happens when it threatens snow in Mississippi, or just colder weather for that matter. :)

  2. You know when it snows here they act like the world is coming to an end. We have never gotten as much as you had though. Just enough to cover a car a little. Sure has been cold enough to have made it worthwhile this winter
