I think today was the seventh day the kids have missed school on account of snow this winter! That is practically unheard of here in central Arkansas. Looks like they’ll be in school until the 4th of July! Let’s hope not.
Last night’s snow storm produced the most winter weather we have seen this year. We had about 3 inches of sleet followed by about 3 inches of snow.
I know some of you from outside the South are laughing at that. I get it. We used to live in Indiana. This stuff shut down the schools, the malls, offices. Chip drove home yesterday as it was all getting started. He said the Interstate was bad.
Check out my fancy snow trekkers! They are little slip-ons that go over your regular shoes. Nifty, huh?! My in-laws got them for me for Christmas. At the time, I wondered if I would ever use them-that’s how little winter weather we get around here. I sure was glad I had them today! I didn’t slip once!
We are all home today. Our “to-do” list consists of drinking hot chocolate, playing board games and strolling around the block.
So, here are scenes from the walk!
I was happy to have a walking partner today.
Many of these buildings and houses are on the National Register of Historic Places.
We weren’t the only ones out and about–
some folks, however, might wish they had stayed home!
Looks like this awning had all the sleet and snow it could handle.
Having 4-wheel drive means you are invincible, right?
Here is Chip-standing in the middle of the road while there is zero traffic.
Hey, look! Signs of Spring!!!
For some reason, I don’t think our little solar lights are going to gather much sunshine like this.
Even the winter decorations on the porch (okay, they are leftover from Christmas) look pretty with snow on them.
I hope you have enjoyed your snow days this winter. I was glad we got a really good dose this year. I think I’m ready for Spring now.
