Ice Day...Well...Actually, Light Rain Day

Today my kids are out of school, and most places around town are closed.

Northerners would laugh.

Do we have slippery, icy streets?


Do we have lots of fun snow for the kids to play in?

Not a bit.

We've had a little rain, and are hovering around freezing, so we're closing up shop.

I love having the kids home from school, but it just seems weird, when the roads are fine, and nothing is falling, to slam on the breaks.

We had the fire in the fireplace, the chili on hand, and hot chocolate ready to go. My mom even came over and spent the night...but nothin'. Don't get me wrong...the yummy chili and hot chocolate won't go to waste, but it's just not quite the same when you look outside when you get up (and all day long as well) and it's just been sprinkling.

Know what I mean?

Here in Utah we have to get like 4 feet of snow before they shut the schools down. Your home sounds so nice and cozy, I'm not sure I'd want to go to school anyways!

Well, I say enjoy because snow/ice days don't come your way often. I do wish I could send some of our snow your way. We didn't get much and certainly not enough to cancel, but would you believe we get our highest snowfall amounts in March/April?
