Lifted Spirits

I can't even begin to tell you how much my spirits are lifted this morning. We all knew that there was a chance of snow today. They said that it really wouldn't start until this afternoon and that we might get 1-3 inches. Guess what! When we woke up this morning I just had this feeling that we already had snow. I looked out our window and you can only imagine what I saw. SNOW! I took approximately 2 1/2 to 3 inches of snow off of my car this morning and it's still snowing. That was around 7:00 this morning. Depending on whether I watch NBC, ABC, CBS or the Weather Channel we could have anywhere between 3-10 inches now. It's amazing how different the forecasts are. But you know what? I really don't care. We have snow and that is exactly what I have been wanting for a long time this winter. It's good packing snow too so we'll be able to make a snowman after school today. Sam's pretty excited about the snow too and was pretty bummed this morning when our school district was not closed. We watched school after school after school scroll across the bottom of the screen but his was never listed. I know that a lot of the kids will have a hard time concentrating at school today because down here snow is a big thing that we don't see that often. I know I keep finding myself just staring out the window watching the snow quietly falling to the ground. Here is a picture of one of our bushes in front of our house this morning. I'm now off to enjoy the day!

As someone who has snow for the better part of a year, it is hard for me to realize how exciting it would be for you. I guess we live in two different worlds. We are tired of the white stuff and are ready for spring.

Have fun with your snowman!! Be sure to post some pictures.
