FINALLY!

The joyous day has finally arrived, and is celebrated in true boy-style.




Well, my white-random-day-in-January is finally here!

I was starting to think that it would NEVER arrive. There's this odd little shield around my county: snow comes straight for us, and then --POOF-- goes around to the north AND south and then joins together again on the east side of the county. I blame Quantico. I really think sometimes that they're testing some bizarre weather shield....

Anyway, it started snowing about 6:30, and it hasn't stopped. This is the back yard around 7:30 or so... (once it was light enough to photograph):The kids went out to play and the dogs, too. As you can see, there wasn't much to speak of, but it was enough for them. They've been waiting 2 years for this, after all! The snow continued to fall, and filled in their tracks quickly. They cleared that table three times, and it's buried once again. Later, we'll probably go sledding, but for now, it's nice to sit, toasty and warm, and watch the flakes flutter by. This is the front yard around 11 o'clock or so. The flakes are still steadily falling, sometimes big and fluffy, sometimes, little bitty ones, but steady, none-the-less.

Tonight, it's supposed to ice, so I'll probably get the day off tomorrow, too. (The kids already have it off.) The flakes are fat and fluffy and beautiful! I just can't get enough of them!

Hooray! We should be getting a little of the storm as it passes south of us on its way to you. Hope you get lots!

Isn't it beautiful?!! We had a blast playing in it this morning too.

Fresh snows are the best! It really is beautiful to look at. We have had more then our share this year. I'm looking forward to spring.

Michelle said...

We got some, too, and I'm very excited! I think we have the same strange weather pattern going on at my house as well.

Hey - I think I got hit by the same storm.

I live in Alexandria VA.

My son is also excited and chanting the word "snow".

K and Michelle - don't we all live near each other? or is it just me and K?

(I live in Stafford... a stone's throw from you, K)

Can't get enough eh? Oops, I spent too much time with the Yoopers in Michigan's extreme north. My sister's back deck is full of snow to the top of the railing. And it'll stay that way till April.

It's cool though to have your backyard disappear in a blanket of white.

Lucky... that's all I got for you because today it was 80 and hot in January gets me sad! I think we are getting a cold snap on Friday.. wooohooo!

Today (Wed.), it's snowing here in Michigan. I heard on the radio it will only be an inch here on the west and in the central part (where your mom lives). Thanks for posting the pictures. We love watching your children grow. It's also good to see you in them.

I am happy for you. Enjoy; hope the ice does you no harm.

It was 85 here yesterday, but the "cold snap" has hit and it is down to 45 this morning!
