And that snow? Every bit of that one-inch stuck. As it turns out, it really helps snow stick when the ground is frozen and since it's been in the 20's the past few days, the ground is plenty frozen.
It's supposed to snow again tomorrow night. Which is great news for us, because we're supposed to take the children skiing for their first time ever this weekend. It'll be the first time I've been on skis in 12 years and I'm a little nervous. Not because I don't know how to ski. I know how to ski rather well, but it feels like there's been a lot of aging that's happened in the past 12 years and I'm not so sure my knees are as stable as they were in 2001. Especially following my little skating mishap last year.
School was delayed by two hours today due to the snow. With those extra two hours, the kids dug out all of their winter gear and ran outside to make snow angels, snow balls, snow men, and walk on the frozen creek in the backyard.
If one day, we suddenly up and move stakes to Canada ... understand it was because I couldn't stand the thought of our children outgrowing boots that were hardly ever worn.
