The snow day we have been waiting for has finally arrived! It’s not as dramatic (or deep) as it was last February. However, it’s still very pretty, and enough snow that the kiddos around here got, not one, but TWO snow days! Man, I wish we had those growing up! (Although, I do remember university classes got cancelled once, can’t remember if it was for a tsunami watch or a hurricane.)
I had to drive home in some of it on Sunday night, before the snow plows could get ramped up. Thankfully, I was able to stay home to enjoy most of it. I did run out to the grocery store to “top up”. Did you know that eggs and milk are a big seller in these conditions? I think we got 5-6 inches Sunday night, and about an inch last night. We are expecting more tonight… and it’s been coming down off and on all day.
Here’s a view from one side this morning, looking toward the street. I think I shared the same view last year.
As I was getting the mail, I saw evidence that critters were still out and about.
Did you know it is a thing to pull a sled along behind a car? The question is: is it better during the day, or at night? We saw both.
And someone practicing “sliding driving”.
I am sure some of you are wondering what the next Paper Pumpkin kit will look like. (I have a project tomorrow to show you what I did with the June kit.)
I find it helpful to see any kind of peek, because if I like it, I actually buy TWO kits. Yes, I am a little crazy. Um, and running out of space…
To receive the July kit, you must sign up by July 10. (You can use the link to the right, or just click here.)
