The snowy day

img_2571We woke to a massive snowstorm this morning. It’s the first major one of the winter, which has been relatively mild so far. It was actually 63 degrees yesterday. I ran outside with no jacket! My 7-year-old and I threw a football in the backyard for half an hour. Then the temperature dropped steadily overnight. The freezing rain started after midnight, and the snow around 5 a.m. School has been canceled. We will see about some activities planned for later today.

  1. Meanwhile in the South it’s 72 degrees, but schools are having to close due to flu epidemics. We got the flu shot, but 4 out of the 5 of us still contracted the flu. 🙁
