Morning Snow




There had been rumors of a snow storm canceling school today.  Some supersticious kids went to bed with PJs inside out and backwards.  This was one time when I actually was hoping for truth to this story.  Snow days usually mean an extra day's plans down the drain.  Kids home fighting and generally getting on my nerves as I think "I totally shouldn't have to be dealing with kids today- it's Monday!"  But not today.  We are on our second round of sickness now.  Fevers with coughing this time.  Heaven help us.  One of my kids has missed enough school that I fear for his grades since catching up isn't a strong point for this middle schooler.  We need another day off to make up for missed work around these parts.  And we are totally behind on our Netflix watching. Tsk tsk.  For now we can't stop staring at the big box in the front room...

The conversation in the window box went something like this.  "I prayed for no school."  "I prayed for time to organize my room and find my cell phone."  "I prayed for no make up work."

Looks like all our answers came this morning in the form of a storm.  Now I am praying for someone to come by with a shovel and a kind heart.

I heard there was a huge east coast snow storm. In like a lion, out like a lamb--isn't that the March motto?

It looks pretty lamb-ish in our neck of the woods this morning. I'm sure my kids would have loved a snow day.

That kind of weather blows over from Iowa, right?!

This is the snow storm that missed the part of West Virginia I live in. Glad you enjoyed it!
