"Snow" Day...



This won't come as a shock to those of you from the South, but this was our Snow Day yesterday. No school. Don't you see the snow drifts? The blizzard conditions?

From this point forward, I will be referring to the snow as "snow".
Because, well, look at it.

So, I thought I'd show you how this "Snow" Day was spent at The Palace.


Heidi and Ruby really enjoyed their day playing in the "snow".
(Wouldn't it be more comfortable for Heidi if she put her
head on the pillow?)



Oliver was pretty excited by his first "snow".


Chloe did whatever it is Chloe does.




The Princess spent her day making crafts.



The King spent a leisurely day doing whatever it is he does.



This is the view from my desk. That 1/2 inch of "snow" really is kind of pretty.



What is not so pretty is this.
I've been working on this pan of brownies a little bit today.
I like the edges.
I wasn't sure you if you could tell.



The "newsgirl" just said she'd never seen "snow" like this.
And she said the grocery stores are selling out of the bread and milk.

Of course they are.

At least you got snow.

That looks like our snow days here. Of course, all we got this time was rain. Rain. and more rain. And I can't forget to mention the mud that comes with the rain as the dogs go in and out and in and out and in and...

I'm a northeast girl living in Jerusalem - and woah! this city shut down for the past two days because of the "snow" that we got. I tried to explain to my boyfriend that this wasn't snow, it was slush - but he wasn't having any of it. This was the only snow he had ever known! I decided to pretend to be a native and hole-up in the house for the two days, because it was so wet and gross outside, that it wasn't worth going out. But it was so amusing to watch kids (little ones and...well, bigger ones too!) build snowmen out of this slush - they had a great time! :)

I'm trying to get ahold of Queen Mother - she won my giveaway, and I don't have her e-mail!

Hey, Queen Mother, if you read this, give me your e-mail address to claim your prize! Otherwise I'll have to re-draw!

My kind of snow day...brownies. I've got more if you run out.

I love how they always put a reporter at the grocery store! I think they draw straws and the loser gets that assignment. What's with everyone buying milk and bread. If I am going to be stuck inside for any amount of time, I want Diet Coke and chocolate.

Didn't you know that bead and milk will sustain you through all types of natural disasters?? Who knows how long you will all be trapped in that house. Oh the horror, the HORROR!!

I have to giggle a little. When my sister went to school in DC they got 2 inches of snow and the entire city shut down. They even had the president go to Camp David...
But here in MN, we get 8 inches of snow and still have school! It was -15 on Wednesday morning and still had school. I wish I could take a snow day when there was 1/2 an inch...I might move...

This post had me cracking up. If you could see the snow we got last night!! About 10 inches and still snowing.
The only thing funnier than the reporters at the stores is the ones that get stuck standing on the side of the road as the traffic whizzes by them and you can tell they are freazing!

So glad you managed to survive the horror that is The Snow.

(And as someone who used to send innocent reporters to stand in the grocery store in SoCal when it would rain -- "The Rain! The Rain! Save us from the water that falls from the sky!" -- I can only say, they LOVE those assignments. The next best assignment was standing outside under an umbrella while the mist falls gently around you as you talk about StormWatch 2008!)

I have an identical pan of brownies at my house! To heck with a rush on bread and milk...I say give me the brownies and hot cocoa! I can't help laughing out loud as i read your blog on the state of our weather! Maybe your doggy wants a pillow like his people:)

That's hilarious! I can totally relate. We used to live in Athens, Georgia, and it's not much (if any) better here in Virginia. We had ice this morning, so our schools were closed. It looks pretty on the trees though! We've had one half-way decent snow this year and I blogged about it. My kids and I went sledding. WooHoo! One day of snow fun...three days of no school! (slush, you know...)

Are your cats Ragdolls?

Angela said...

Yeah, the two feet in my back yard, three in the front are nothing to what you've gotten! Our schools have shut down once this winter, that was when it was -30 and the busses wouldn't start up. I'd love only a half inch! Enjoy.

We had a 2 hour delay this morning. For what ended up to just be RAIN! What is this, baseball?????

That is very funny. We had a snow day yesterday (Friday, Feb.1) and it was because of about 10 inches of snow! Yes, I do live in the frozen north, why do you ask?

Okay - the above made me chuckle but I thought "Snow...beer and wings!"
