But apparently, at this very moment, there is a storm bearing down on the east coast and according to news reports, tomorrow we will see an accumulation of 4-8 inches of snow in these parts.
By the weekend, however, the temperatures are expected to be in the high 50's so whatever snow falls most likely won't stick around for long.
In anticipation of this great event, the children have crafted "LET IT SNOW!" fliers that they hung all around the house, tonight.
They also flushed ice cubes down the toilet and went to bed wearing their pajamas backwards. (These specific activities have been shown to raise the odds of snow in certain superstitious circles.)
They're pretty excited.
But not nearly as excited as Charlie and I. We're planning to wear our snowsuits to bed so that in the morning when we wake up and see a world of white, we won't waste any precious time getting outside.
So, anyway. No pressure, Mother Nature. Although, if you could help the weather channel get this one right, that would be super swell. They're starting to lose a bit of credibility.
