So far we've gotten snow showers mostly - more rain than flakes. But we will get a good snow before long. It's the kids who long for a snow day (and us adults). The funny thing is, our school board sometimes likes to call a snow day if the weatherman thinks we are going to get a few inches. Then it turns out to be nothing much and at the end of the season we get dumped on and are scrambling to keep the kids in school with no snow days left! I do like how our town covers the streets with salt when a big storm is supposed to come. We are prepared! Unlike our southern friends who have to shut everything down when they get a surprise dumping. Either way, snow days are splendid!
Anticipation is watching a fluffy, gray sky for the first snowflake to fall.
These are a few of my favorite snow things:
- seeing a coating of snow on everything - so pretty!
- watching big snowflakes fall, I could look at it out my window all day
- snowmen, snowforts, watching my boys have snowball fights and sledding
- real icicles
"Icicles - they'll poke your eye out!"
How do you feel about snow?
