We 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.
In the meantime, I attempted snowman-shaped chocolate chip pancakes. They turned out pretty well! No cookie cutters needed. Just make 3 connected pancakes on the griddle, and put the chocolate chips on as eyes, nose, and buttons. Then eat, or post on Instagram first.

The “massive snowstorm” only produced 2 inches of snow by us. So disappointing!
@Kim – once it stopped, it was a quick clearing job around here. That’s the best snow – pretty but only shuts things down for a few hours.
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. 🙁
@Jennie- ooh, that’s a bummer. My kids were so upset about having to get the shot it would add insult to injury to get the flu too! Hope everyone is feeling better soon.
One of my happy memories from childhood is my mom making teddy bear-head shaped pancakes for us. Even simpler than snowman pancakes!
