I forgot to mention that we had a "snow-ish" day a couple of weeks ago. We were in a 6-8" band, but ended up with about 1.5" of icy slush--but of course that was enough for school to be cancelled. (I got to work from home.) The stuff was heavy. But seeing as though it was all we had, we made it work (after Rhett's morning tantrum due to disappointment, that is). We got out of the snow gear, played, sledded (the boys wanted to go out at 7:30 a.m. when it was still precipitating--ugh), watched movies, even had our one and only fire of the season. Not a bad snow day!
