Snow Day!

This is so different for us here in southern California that I just had to share. It started snowing at about 5:30 this morning and continued more on than off until about 10. We live high enough up that we knew there was a fair chance of  a little snow this winter.

Talk about free fun on a Friday!

We woke the kids up, as they had told us that if it ever did start snowing, they wanted to hear about it right away. Wouldn’t have made much of a difference with how long it kept snowing, but we really thought it would quit much sooner than it did.

That’s first thing in the morning, as fast as the kids could get dressed. Snow, and ice beneath it. My husband wasn’t able to get to work on time because his little 3 door Saturn slid too much for him to feel safe about driving. He was able to call in, and finally left sometime a little before 10.

We only saw people driving heavy trucks until after about 8 a.m. this morning. The roads really were slick for a long time.

Selene found it pretty interesting. Obviously we didn’t give her much time in the snow. Too young.

Enough snow that someone down the street made a pretty nice snowman. My kids haven’t figured out how to do a good one yet, but then this was only their second time ever in the snow.

I did get Gage trying to throw some snowballs, though.

Selene had to be the cutest, though. Utterly fascinated. Too bad she’s too little to remember this later. She could tell it was something unusual and she was just plastered to a window every chance she got.

    “Too bad she’s too little to remember this later.” – that’s exactly what pictures are for – glad you took them!

    Unusual but so fun. News said we got 2-4 inches up here, and there’s still some on the ground. Might even get a bit more overnight. We got a bit more an hour ago, but it was too wet to stick.

    Kids were practically bouncing off the walls after being called in for the evening.

    Oh, and I finally got both kids to work on building snowmen!

    We live in Chicago and the snow here comes in plenty. I am sure you are enjoying this rarity for your family. How cool.
    What would be great for us is a day in the middle of winter with some California sun! Can you send some our way…..

    I’ll try. It might not get there until June or so.
