Snow Days

Snow around here is a novelty, some winters we don't get any and if it does snow, it is generally melted within a day or two. I don't own a snow shovel and I don't know many who actually own a sled. You are most likely to see a trash can lid, cardboard box or  boogie board going down a slippery slope for fun in the snow here. (I even saw a photo of someone using a surfboard on FB last week) Trash bags taped around the ankle work in a pinch for boots. That's how it rolls down here.

We got a little bit of snow last week, maybe two or three inches and it closed everything down. Schools were closed two days and most places of business were closed the day of the "storm" That snow didn't go away for several days because the temperatures stayed below freezing, but this grandma wasn't complaining because it gave me the opportunity to get some photos

Even though I am not a big fan of snow...too cold, it slows us all down from our busy lives. Schedules stop, everyone is home, we have time to play games, pop popcorn, cook, work on projects together and enjoy each others company, not really a bad thing.      Why are we so busy?

The snow is going to make a repeat performance sometime today, so it looks like we will be home bound again,  and I'm looking forward to it.

I have wondered what would happen in busy So. California should be ever get some of that white stuff, haha. We have gotten a tiny, dusting once or twice (in my entire 59 years that I can remember!) that didn't even last the day, but that is it. I'd LOVE LOVE LOVE to see things slow down once in a while. Everyone is always in such a hurry. Enjoy your snow day!!

It's like that here too, believe it or not. Some people seem to think that all of Canada is frozen over all winter...but, not here! Our weather is like Seattle's...rain, rain, grey, sometimes sun, and then more drizzly days...all winter long. :) It sounds and looks like you are making the most of your snow my friend. I like the snowed in feeling when it only lasts a few days...enjoy!! Hugs, Camille

Precious photos. We have had the cold here this year and ice, but no snow. We rarely get it also, but it is fun to have it every so often, but the ice, well forgot it. It shut us down for days!
Pretty snow pictures.

Dear Maryann, I ask myself the same thing all the time (Why are we so busy?) Really a snow day gives us a mini slow down. The children look sweet and so precious.
Doing well here, we have a bit of a warm up here. May your day be a blessing today...
Always, Roxy
