Apparently snow days aren't just for schools shutting down, but the federal government catches a break, too. And since Jared is contracted out by the government, we were hollarin' like school kids when we got the word that dad was going to be kickin' it with us all day yesterday! Jared was most excited because he has been waiting and waiting for a snow dump big enough to take Evelyn sledding, and the clouds delivered just the perfect amount to send that little girl down cross-legged on her first saucer ride. As you can see, we aren't much of the snow going kind and snow gear we had none; this caused us to improvise with the trash bags over Ev's legs :)
This morning we woke up to the sound of water trickling off the roof as the snow succumbed to the blazing sun and we are projected to hit 60 on Sunday. I'm glad we got one snow day and that it was quickly done. That's all we needed. Now bring on spring time with it's songbirds chirping, tulips peeking through the ground, the smell of manure mulch, and the green buds on the trees! And like every spring, I'm going to be singing this.
