It snowed here. You may have heard about that, since the Media thinks that a) all winter storms need names now (this one was Hercules) and b) any weather system headed for the heavily-populated Northeast US is a Major News Event.
It wasn’t that bad.
Yes, it snowed (about 8 inches here). Yes, we had some dangerous wind chills for a few hours. Yes, the winds howled for a while, and made driving/plowing/shoveling difficult.
But then it stopped. The sun came out. The roads could be cleared. Most folks got to work by noon-ish.
The worst part? That it was still too cold and windy on Friday to take the Small People outside…
And there was a brand-new red plastic sled sitting on the front porch waiting for them…
Thank goodness that changed soon!
Sledding is AWESOME.
Even the grownups had fun…
I will spare Hubby’s dignity, and not post the pictures of his ride. As I had the camera, there are none of me…but I had my fair share!
There were also plenty of Snack Breaks.
Sweet Cleo had as much fun as the kids.
