Snow day #2 (2009-10) - We celebrated L's birthday as a family tonight, since Ice wasn't home on Wednesday. She got to pick what we had for supper (fettucine alfredo) and blew out candles and opened presents. T was supposed to be here but, yet...

Yesterday was snow day #1 (2009-10) - Nobody was really sure why it was a snow day, although I'm guessing the roads were a mess early in the morning. The rest of the day, it just rained. L was disappointed because she claims her birthday rarely falls...

Snow day #2 (2008-9) - I went out this afternoon to run some errands (library, grocery store, etc). I was walking and although it was really cold and snowy, it was bearable. Until I turned down our street to come home. The wind in my...

Snow day #3 (2007-8) - At least two of my children were somewhat disappointed. Me, I was surprised since, the night before, the weather chick said there was "zero chance" of a snow day. Christmas shopping isn't done but we're getting there....

Snow day #2 (2007-8) - And they say this is just a preview of winter. The kids spent a significant amount of time shovelling the two foot drifts out of the driveway this afternoon. Almost all of that snow came last night. At one point,...
