I must admit to being a bit jealous of all the snow everyone was having. Feet and feet of snow. I wasn't quite so jealous of that. I just wanted pretty snow. Pictures of my girls making snowballs. Snowmen. Snowangels. Pictures of the snow in the trees.
I didn't want snowpocalypse. Or snowmageddon. Just snow. No ice. Pretty. Not scary.
And that is what our Southern snow was on Friday. It started lightly. Just dusting the surface.
Starting in the early afternoon. So the kids didn't even lose a day of school.
But it kept snowing.
And snowing. Enough that there were snowballs.
Please note. This is a Southern snow. With Southern children. Which means that we don't have the equipment. No snow jackets. We used our rain coats.
No snow pants. Wet jeans and wet leggings make for a cold child. No sleds. We used garbage bags.
Does that make it a redneck snow?
We even had a kitty escape because she needed to check out the snow.
And when we woke up on Saturday. It was like a fairy land. With the gorgeous blue skies.
And the sun reflecting off all the snow.
Then. Less than 24 hours after it started. It was practically gone.
So...what about you? How much snow have you had this year? Do you like the snow or are you pining for summer?
