Snow Day


Where I live in North Florida snow is not unheard of, but it is pretty rare.  Snow that actually stays frozen long enough to play with is even rarer - maybe a once in 5 to 10 years kind of event.  Today was one of those special days.  When we woke up this morning we had a light dusting of snow all over the yard.  It felt pretty magical.


Since we have absolutely no infrastructure in place to actually deal with snow or ice on the road, and no one has any idea how to drive safely on snow or ice, everything was shut down including the kid's school and my work, and we had a snow day.


The boy loved playing with the snow where it had clumped together and gathered enough to make a 3-inch tall man.  It was the biggest and only snowman we have ever made here in Florida.


The girl was not quite as keen on the snow as her brother, but she did keep from freezing long enough to make a very respectable snowball.


Once we had all been thoroughly frozen we headed inside to enjoy some s'mores by the fire.


For all of you who are having a much snowier snow day than us, stay warm.
