Will had a track meet yesterday afternoon. I wore my down parka and still froze. Felt so sorry for the runners in shorts and tank tops.

My friend's husband met up with us at the meet and said nonchalantly, "So did you hear we could get 4-12 inches of snow?"

I laughed. I hadn't heard that and frankly, I didn't buy it. It's been warm and sunny lately. (I told you yesterday that I have a farmers tan from wearing short sleeves.) 

Evidently, the joke is on me because when I woke up we had about 5 inches of snow on the ground.

And our make-up snow day ended up being cancelled because of SNOW. Irony.

It's still coming down hard, and my meteorologist-neighbor said we could get 6 more inches tonight. 

I'll take an unexpected day at home with my peeps. On the agenda: Movies. Hot cocoa/coffee. Reading. Baking cookies. Pajamas. Laziness.

The gift of a lazy family day in late April is priceless.  Peace out, peeps.

(If we get out later, I'll take/post some pics.)

Seems like I remember this happening last year too...the whole country moving into summer, and you still sitting in snow. You attitude is amazing!

Have a great snow day! Three day weekend! YAy!

Wow, I thought we had it bad here in Ohio. I don't know how you deal with so much snow this late into April. Blech.

We have had many springs like this. Although this year we actually are getting a warm, sunny spring. But I'm still skeptical as I haven't put the boots and coats away yet! Hope to see pics.

Snow so late in the season, wow! Well the good thing is a great day at home with the kiddos. We've had beautiful weather lately here. Although today was a bit warmer then I would have liked.

Enjoy your weekend!

Too funny! I remember you saying several times that you guys get your most snow later in the season/early into spring, but it still surprises me every time.

Brenda said...

Yep, I heard you all got dumped on. We only wind and rain.
I think I like it down here in the south!

Being in your home terf I fully understand your confusion with the weather. At any day, winter, spring, summer or fall you can expect that you may need any and all of the appropriate clothing for snow or beach wear. A 50 degree drop or rise in one day is common and that's what keeps it exciting aroune here.
I'm glad you enjoyed your gift day. I like that you gifted yourself too to your kids abd to your self by making the day relaxed and fun instead of a busy, let's clean house day. This one you will all rememmber.
