It doesn't always cover the ground....


Snow days in the South aren't the same as snow days up North. For instance, it doesn't take tons of snowfall to earn us a snow day from school. A little bit of snow or ice and temperatures below freezing will do the trick. No snow chains on our tires down here. Up until a couple of years ago, snow days were pure fantasy for my daughter and for most of my students. Nary a flurry to coat our roads from the time they were four or five years old until they came close to being teenagers. Now, though, we're getting a little comfortable with annual snowfall, although I must confess that we had a little more ice than snow this year.

A few spills made it even more exciting....


Did you notice the type of sled she used today? It doubles as a boogie board during summer trips to the beach.


Nothing like a little repurposing.... and a day in the snow!

What a beautiful girl. a boogie board, that would work for sure. have a great day. yesterday 30 of our city buses were stuck, cars still stuck everywhere. I am glad to get out of town tomorrow...more snow expected. when I was outside yesterday, it sure was fresh and beautiful out. take care.

I think because we are such a large state, we have such a difference in weather. It snowed in El Paso last week and Dallas the day before yesterday, yet not even one bit of sleet here (smack dab in the middle of the state.) I wouldn't be surprised if we didn't get snow this year, but it is VERY cold today.

It looks like your snow day was fun.
