I sometimes have a hard time trusting the weather guys. The only job where you can be wrong 80% of the time and still have a job. (You've heard that one before though, right?) But they said yesterday that by morning we would see snow. And sure enough, this morning we woke to snow. A blanket of white.
Of course the snow led to a 2-hr delay for the kids, which then turned into a snow day about an hour later.
But it's the first snow of the season. Which is a little crazy since it's Janaury and many have had or seen snow as early back as October.
The kids are happy. Not because of the snow day, though I'm sure that helps. The kids are happy because they will actually be able to play in the snow today. Last year, despite all the snow fall (and it wasn't much) most snow fell and disappeared before anyone could even get suited up. Bummer. I can only remember a few occassions where the kids played, at length, in the snow.
So good on ya, weather guys. You called it. It's a snow day! The first of the year! And while the rest of us try to get back and forth to work, I hope you enjoy today. If you're playing in it, make a couple snow balls for me. If you're driving in it, slow down and take your time. If you just sitting back watching it fall...well, enjoy that cup of hot cocco and remember the beauty of fresh fallen snow.
Happy Snow Day everyone!
