Snow "Days" aren't really accurate either. It's more like snow moments.
This is yet another reason that I'm thankful for homeschooling. The school kids often miss the snow entirely. They get the slushy cold aftermath, following a day of watching big white flakes fall on the other side of the glass. But, regardless of the day or time, we can run out and snap some pictures, catch a few flakes on our tongues, or make some snow (muddy) angels on the ground.
(Yes, laundry is fair trade for joy of this kind.)
At 8am this morning I called my parents to make sure they would see it. Dad initially disputed this...then he squinted and caught a glimpse of the small flurrying flakes. "ahhh....well, yes, it is actually snowing."
The kids started dancing around. Mannheim Steamroller was started to enhance the mood.
I tried to get photos of the flakes falling, but they didn't show up. You'll have to do with a picture of where the flakes landed. LOOK--SNOW!**update**
It actually snowed ALL day. Wow. I can't stand dreary weather (!!!) , but I can handle it if we get some snow. :-) So I walked around outside, went to the store, and ran some other errands. Actually, I didn't have much of a choice since we were out of milk and diapers. Still, I enjoyed the outings. :-) Hope you did, too.
