It's Beginning to Look Too Much Like Christmas

Beautiful view out my office window (at home)
I like snow. But enough is enough for the moment. We had a nice snow on Sunday, far exceeding the forecast. We were supposed to get a few inches and ended up getting about 8-9 inches. This was great for the kids, who got to go out and play with their friends all day and have a good time. We didn't have to go anywhere, so we didn't get caught up in all the road nightmares that they were talking about on the news (and which some friends got tangled up in). The bonus was the two hour school delay they got yesterday morning because of the hazardous road conditions. Main roads didn't seem too awful on Monday morning, but side roads were very treacherous and there were a lot of fender benders, including a car which went off the road and hit a tree right down the street from us.

Last night they were forecasting more snow today, ranging from a dusting to a foot depending on who you listened to. Consensus seemed to be in the 4-6 inch range. Another two hour delay seemed certain, with a day off a distinct possibility, since the storm was supposed to start during the morning rush hour and continue through much of the daylight hours. Sure enough, we got a call from the school district at 5:25am that school was being cancelled for the day. The kids are thrilled.

It's very pretty. The kids are having a blast. But we have a lot to do to get ready for Christmas. Errands to run. Shopping to finish. And they are already talking about the next storm we could get over the weekend.

Save some of this for Christmas!
