After 16 or so hours without electricity, we lost our salmon, but the milk survived. They will battle all manner of danger, swimming upstream, up waterfalls and past hungry brown bears to get to their mating grounds....but give up in the fridge after a few hours. Who knew?
Power or no power, Snow Day was happenin'! We woke up to a winter wonderland and it was just a shock to my kids!
We got a whole three inches! And, this is where all my northern friends start laughing hysterically. But, 3 inches is a big deal in the low country y'all! It was all the way up to my ankles!!!
But, I think I'll hold off on buying a show shovel just yet!
Roxy would like me to shovel her path to yard though! Is it considered animal cruelty now if you don't buy a coat for your dog? 'Cause if it is, y'all should know that I told her to put it on before she went out. She said it makes her tail look big!
My snow bunnies! Lacking in all manner of waterproof snow gear, of course. But, that didn't seem to slow them down one little bit!
We had to make snow angels!
There's another snow angel!
Then we began the must-build-a-snowman!
What's a few leaves to a snowman?
Please notice how making a snowman used most of the snow in the yard! How funny is that?
Okay, maybe it's not funny if you are still buried up to your eyebrows in snow up in Maryland or Ohio or Virginia. But, it's funny to me!
And, of course, what snow day is complete without a snowball fight!
Deciding who her victim will be!
The rest of the snow went to build forts, from which they pounded each other with more snowballs!
Our Lizzie? She's not dumb! She stayed nice and warm by the fire with her hot tea!
And to complete the afternoon....roasting hot dogs and Jiffy pop over a fire baby!
