If I had known we had a snow day like this headed our way, I might have held off on my “snow day” post from back in January. Once again, no laughing from any of my midwestern or northern friends reading this, as I know our 4 inches don’t begin to compare to all of the snow you’ve seen this winter… but I have to admit this was a pretty big deal for us. This was the most snow I’ve seen in I don’t know how many years… and definitely the most snow that our 2 year old son & 5 year old Weim had ever seen.
This was the perfect snow. It was perfect for making snow angels, having snow ball fights, building snowmen… all of the typical snow fun activities you could think of. At any given time, you could hear a great snowball fight going on somewhere in our neighborhood. There’s nothing like a rare snow for us southerners to bring out the kid in EVERYONE. We even bundled up and went on a walk after things warmed up today… only to run into people sledding down some of the great hills in our neighborhood – kids and adults alike.
As I type this, it’s all beginning to melt away. Again, the perfect snow… have a little fun, take a few pictures, and then watch it all melt away so we can (safely) return to the roads. Some of us forgot to pick up our bread & milk beforehand, you know!
Here are a few scenes from our beautiful February snow…
