the weather on wednesday, was weird all day. cold, rainy, freezing rain, hail. people were reporting all sorts of stuff. it had snowed off and on, too, but nothing that stuck. that evening, after the kids went to bed, the ground turned all white and we had BIG fat flakes falling!!!
next morning, there wasn’t much on the roads, but the grass, trees, and roofs were all covered in about and inch of snow. our ‘local’ school district, had a 2 hour delay, which meant that micah’s preschool was closed. unfortunately, shane goes to school in our ‘old’ district, and they were on time. we kept him home from jazz band, but the roads weren’t much better an hour later when I left to take him to school. we just went very slowly, especially on all the hills, and got there just fine, but a little late (as was everyone else, including some buses).
after layla and micah had had breakfast, we busted open the boxes of snow stuff that had been packed since we moved. we had to find gloves and boots and snowpants that would fit them this year, and fortunately, we had the right sizes of stuff.
