Snow Day!

Today the phone rang at 6AM. Ohhh...who could be calling before my alarm...how rude! We didn't catch the main phone but within a few seconds my husband's cell began to ring. Then my cell began to ring. What was this conspiracy to wake me up eary? When I answered my cell I quickly found out the school was testing a new automated information system. Due to the high winds with corresponding low wind chills and white-out conditions, school was cancelled. Wow! A real snow day. No work for me...hurray! Laying around doing nothing...I really could have done a ton today but I sat and watched Little House on the Prairy all day. :) So here I am at almost 5 pm and the natives are growing restless. Crying and fighting and whining. The wind is blowing and the snow is building a giant drift across our road and driveway. It is too cold for the kids to play outside. I think this snow day thing is overrated! :) I think a family movie complete with popcorn will be in order tonight. I will enjoy the routine tomorrow of getting the kids out the door to school and then heading out to work.

Ours is an ice storm and we will still be iced in tomorrow and the schools in our area will be closed again tomorrow. I'm thankful we can just stay home and stay in.

I am beginning to think we will be stuck home tomorrow too. :) The snow drifts are huge and are all around our cars. I am kind of hoping we are close so I don't have to call in if I can't get out! :)

We've been iced in for 4 days!! I'm going a bit stir crazy today so my wonderful husband is taking my youngest to daycare and my oldest with him to work. I think I'll take a nap and listen to the silence today!

At least you don't have hurricane days like we get every so often.

whoooaaa just look at all that snow, its beautiful, we never have more than a light sprinkling here, so if you can spare some, send it over to us in the uk ;)

That looks fantastic, we never ever had a snow day in UK. We are forecast to get some this weekend but as Posh says it will probably be only a sprinkle...
