Yesterday afternoon a shift in the air finally took place and snow began to fall. I watched excitedly from my office window. The kids were home with Ben, off for a snow day. They didn’t believe me at first when I said there was no school. Looking out the window they saw only rain, not a flake of snow in sight. Since the storm was supposed to start mid day schools were extra cautious and cancelled instead of dealing with an early release. At about 1:00 flakes slowly started falling and before long they were sticking to the sidewalks and rooftops. Layer after layer of white began to cover the ground, everything looks clean covered in a fresh blanket of snow. Our office closed early and once home I snapped some pictures of the kids in the backyard.
Today, as I type this, I hear the dripping of the icicles as the warmth of the sun shines through the window. Tomorrow we are expected to receive some freezing rain (a part of winter I could do without). On the agenda for the rest of today is grocery shopping. I was told the renovated Kroger not far from us has a lot of gluten-free options. A quick swing by there to see what they have and then on to Whole Foods. I may try to squeeze in a trip to the yarn store. I have two scarves to make before Christmas. I hope you enjoy your Saturday.
