I remember being in school and wishing with everything I had for snow so I didn't have to go to school. Back then we got SNOW, like 6 inches plus everytime. Now getting snow is rare, and 4 inches is about our limit.
LOL I love that, back then, as if I'm sooo old.
Picture it Sicily 1933....haha Golden Girls flashback.
And yes I know those of you who get feet of snow, not inches, are probably laughing at my SNOW reference. I can't help that we get measly flurries and that is big time for us. It's what I have to work with folks.
I think we got three inches this time, and by 10am this morning, it was beginning to melt.
Since Ms. Jocelbean has a bad cough today, playing out in the 'snow' was going to have to wait until naptime. But by then our backyard had turned into a muddy pit. The ground is still mostly white, but it's slush.
I don't mind my kids getting dirty, however our backyard is a mud pit with rain or snow. You sink down a few inches with every step. That isn't so fun. ESPECIALLY when you have a polar bear for a dog that craps as big as our cat in said back yard.
No snow play today, damnit three times. Instead we're just doing our thing, having a lazy day of nothing.
