What They Call A Big Snow Down Here

Having lived in Michigan, the excitement and panic that this amount of snow creates is almost comical. People rush to the stores, stocking up on bread and milk because "You just never know when you will be able to get out again".

Love it.

Also love that it doesn't stay around for too long.

One morning of struggling with boots, gloves, wet clothes, etc., and I give thanks that it will disappear soon.

Like, by the end of the day.

It's just that we don't have the right snow gear anymore, and without it, it's just a cold mess to be outside for any length of time.

Still, the kids shot off Saturday morning, congregating with other neighbor kids in the cul-de-sac.

A snowlady was assembled, snow balls were tossed, and the laughter was sweet to my ears.
