Springtime in the Rockies!

Well, I finally got that snow day I've been wanting for a while. We have about 6 inches on the ground and it's still snowing. Our school district, and every district in our county is closed today. Yeah!

Interestingly, today is the first day of spring. The weather forecasters around here are quite fond of the phrase "springtime in the Rockies". It's used to describe the widely varied weather conditions we experience this time of year. And varied is an appropriate word. Yesterday, we heard thunder, saw lightning, had fog, sunshine, rain, snow, and sleet, all in the space of a few hours. Definitely varied.

So we're going to take advantage of this day at home and catch up on some rest. Last week I got the Little House on the Prairie dvds from (by the way, I LOVE and the kids thought watching Laura and Ma and Pa and Mary was just the greatest thing ever. We're going to watch a couple episodes today and later head over to Toboggan Hill for some serious sledding. Should be fun!
