We were at the church cleaning yesterday morning (members take turns with the upkeep of the building) when it started to snow. By the time we finished vacuuming, there was about half an inch on the ground and it was still falling, fast and furious. A few snowballs were lobbed in the parking lot and the kids were excitedly planning some sledding. We got in the car and headed home, anticipating boots and mittens and sleds and hot chocolate. Imagine the disappointment as we drove the barely three miles to home and discovered not one flake of the white stuff at our house! We were just to the south of the storm!
I drove McKelle back into town a little later and was amazed at all the snowmen and snow forts we saw. Still just a little rain at our house but at least 4 inches of snow downtown. She was supposed to go from a birthday party to the high school basketball game to play in the pep band, but I received a robo-call from the school notification system saying all games were cancelled because of bad roads!
This morning, a very loud little voice woke me up. "How did all that snow get here?" from a very excited Mason. Max answered with "I have no idea!"
We were all missing the snow we had in Minnesota, so we're definitely finding joy in the winter wonderland outside this morning.
