Snow Day

This picture was actually taken last year on a *Snow Day* when my son's friend was stranded at our house on his birthday, but it seemed to fit the day.

Early this morning I awoke to lightning, thunder and torrential rain that froze when it hit the ground, turning our roads into a slippery skating rink. Since our school is mostly made up of rural students and teachers from out of town, classes were called off for the day and we were treated to extra hours snuggled beneath our covers.

It's always nice to have a break from the everyday activities and have a day at home to rest. And I know I would miss winter if I lived somewhere warm and sunny all year round.

That being said, I'm looking forward to the first green of spring and waking up to birds singing outside my window. The calendar says that's just a month away...and I'm holding her to it!

its been a long winter here in Minnesota. Very cold, in fact we have had only 2 or 3 days that have got into the teens for highs. Being a native californian, I could relocate to the sun with no problem! But I do love the change of the seasons. Looking forward to green grass, baseball, and sunshine in april!

SSSSSSH.. so far NYC hasnt had any 'real' snow .. we were supposed to get some yesterday but thankfully it didnt happen .. now I am hoping that 'they' are wrong about tonite/tomorrow when there's a BIG snow storm scheduled .. I hope it makes a turn elsewhere .. like out into the Atlantic... BUT I wouldnt ever like not to have ALL those wonderfully photogenic seasons!

The boys look like they are having fun and enjoying the day off from school; I can remember the wonderful feeling of having a “snow day” when I was a girl!
