Snow Day

Today was our first "snow" day. We don't get many in Oklahoma. Basically when it is sleeting or snowing, the town shuts down. We just don't have the equipment or manpower to take care of icy roads.

The kids were excited to have a day off.

The problem is: we have ice not snow! It has been sleeting for the last 24 hours. We are suppose to get snow later today. We may get 4-8inches which is a lot for us. Areas of Oklahoma are actually having BLIZZARD warnings? Wow, that is basically unheard of.

The Christmas parade on Saturday has already been cancelled. Yeah, We are basically wimps here when it comes to cold weather.

The kids are so excited and have played outside a little but it doesn't make for good snowmen or snow angels. They so want to play in it but the pelting sleet makes for a very cold and somewhat painful play time.

We had friends from the neighborhood over earlier to get rid of some of the boredom.

As for me, I am enjoying a relaxing day inside without a place to go.
