Snow Day

Hard to believe it because most of the snow has melted but we got several inches of snow last night and the roads were bad this morning so we had a snow day. Even though we have to make these days up, I love snow days. It always seems like an unexpected holiday. I was in the back of the house quilting and looked out to see Chad making a huge snowball. Got the camera and then noticed this -- he's out in the snow with no shoes! Amazing! He did manage to get a good size snowball before his poor little piggies got so cold he had to come in. Snow will all be gone in the morning, then we have a round of thunderstorms coming, then snow again. It's been a funny cycle this winter. I'm not complaining though. It hasn't been terribly cold (good thing with the gas bills being double what they were last year) and we've had no real accumulation of ice.

  • Judy,
    The pic of the naked piggies in the snow made me get chills! YIKES!!! Love the snowball too! And I'm like you...it is like an unplanned holiday when school is cancelled! But tell Chad to put SHOES on next time! ;o)
    Hugs

  • Looks like fun. I understnad the bills section though. I have the same problem here. Weather has been wet and mild but heating bills are to high for my liking.

  • Well the bare feet in the snow look something my son would do - yes it is a boy thing. But I got a laugh at the big snowball but off to the left are those daisies! That is too funny!
