Snowmageddon 2014

The schools closed Wednesday in anticipation of Snowmageddon 2014.  It started snowing Wednesday at 12:30 and didn't stop until Thursday at 3:30 pm.  We got about six inches by bedtime Wednesday night and then we heard sleet pounding the windows almost all night. It packed the snow down and then snowed some more today bringing a grand total of about 7.5 or 8 inches.

So on Wednesday the kids got to try snow cream for the first time and I don't think either of them much cared for it.

The kids and I played outside briefly.

But this was my favorite part of Wednesday:

It took him 1:05 to get home since the cars were going so slowly on the highways. It's normally a 20 minute drive.

Jonathan fortunately didn't have to go in to work today so before we went outside to play in the snow we sent the kids upstairs to get dressed. Apparently this is Joshua's idea of getting layered up for snow because this is what he came downstairs wearing.

I'm all ready, Mom!

After a few hours outside, sledding, snowman building, and a nice lunch we watched a whole lot of television and generally acted lazy.

We made Valentine's cookies for the mailman. We wrote thank yous and took them to the mailbox.

We put together puzzles and made pizza for dinner.

Now the kids are in bed and school is canceled tomorrow for the third day in a row. We'll be going until June 13th but I suppose that's fine with me. At least it didn't mess up any of my 20-mile runs.

Stay safe, y'all!
