Snow Days 2015

So the recent snowstorm that swept across the South missed us by just a few miles. The National Weather Service issued a Winter Storm Warning on Tuesday afternoon and, remembering last year, the city shut down. We all missed two days of school, and Jay spent most of the first on the radar watching the snow and ice drift just a touch to the north. They still cancelled school the second day on account of a persistent rain that could, at any moment, have shifted into ice or snow. This morning, however? Well, just see for yourself:
Watching out the window during lunch, Kira suddenly shouted out: "Daddy! Look! There's snow up in that tree!" We all looked at it kind of wistfully. I had wanted to get a picture of my three kids playing in the snow yesterday, and this is the best I'm going to get this year, I think.
Kira has actually missed three days this week, as our county got a wayward bit of ice on Tuesday morning that completely missed the city; Jay went to work and she stayed home. TV Thursday rolled around here on Day Three just in time today to keep us sane. Simon's stance there reminds me of John at that age: while Kira would sit on the couch he would stand in the door to watch the TV, ready for a hasty exit. It's pretty cute.

  1. I am sad. I was looking forward to some cute snow pix too. We should have all gone to the mountains!
