Well the weather men had us all excite here this week. At the first of the week they were saying we were going to get some snow on sunday. But of course now that has all changed. It has been very cold here this week, but it seems that it is going to warm up just enough to make the snow turn into rain,,yippee. Now I was really ready for a nice snow so I could take the toy out and take some wonderful snow pictures. The are saying that we probably will get some snow in the near future as the weather patterns are indicating that. The last really nice snow we had here was 4 years ago this past monday. It was a nice, deep snow. It came fast and quick starting around 9 in the morning. Of course they didn't let school out fast enough and some school buses were stuck and it was late evening before some kids got home. I was smart and stayed home that day. My kids were still in school. Kalyn had to walk up the big ridge to get home,,she wasn't a happy camper. When it snows really hard and fast, it paralyzes our city. We just don't have the equipment to deal with it. People will get stuck on the interstate and side roads, and end up having to leave their cars. Its pretty wild here when that happens. I guess its good that it doesn't happend that much. But since I have snow fever,,I am going to post some pics of that very wonderful snow 4 years ago. And maybe it will change our luck and actually snow instead of rain on sunday,,lol.
The day after it snowed, Kalyn and I walked down our backyard into the woods. There is a pond down there and it was frozen over. The day was pretty and sunny but really cold.
I love these pictures. We had such a fun time that day. I made a little scrapbook of this adventure, so she will have it when she gets older and can show her children.
I guess the reason I love a nice snowfall is that is makes every thing so pretty. It hides the dreary, dead of the winter. I know everyone that lives where snow is a every day occurance thinks "whippee",,but when you don't get alot of it , you love it when you do. So maybe we will get some soon.
I hope every one has a wonderful week-end!
