Snow Day version 2

As in yesterday the kids had a snow day.  We had a reasonable amount of snow finally for this winter, and due to the rain that fell before the snow…

full pond As you can now see the pond is now full!  YEAH!  Now if it just stays full we’ll be doing very well.  The fun part we had yesterday was that the top was all slush. so just to see we were tossing snow balls onto the top of the pond and it would hit the slush leaving a dent in the slush which under it would fill with liquid water.

Do you see all that wonderful snow??    It was a fun storm that is for sure as it had started us off with rain Monday afternoon.  Then in the evening, and I was watching it happen.  We got large fluffy snow flakes that as I watched were “sticking” to the ground.

…and as for my comment about watching it.  I was standing at the door making sure the dogs didn’t run off while they went out to go do their business; which took less than five minutes.  So I saw the snow starting to fall and “stick” in that time frame.

At 4 am yesterday morning we got the message that the kids would be off of school for the day.  Which after I opened the door yesterday morning I understood why buses here wouldn’t be able to pick up the kids.  As I know the buses here do not use chains they would not have done the dirt roads here yesterday.

So this morning looking at all the school closings lists the kids were semi disappointed that they were going to school today.  I guess the school determined that the roads were used enough so their would be grooves in the snow on the dirt roads.  I am not sure how much the school bus the kids are on traverse the dirt roads around here.

This morning the weather person told us due to what the storm is doing we may have snow for the next few days, on and off.  Well I know this will help our “rainfall totals” so that’s good.  Though we may wind up with a bit of flooding when it all melts.  Good thing we live on a hill.

We lost our internet for a portion of yesterday as after the snow storm the dish was coated with snow.  So Silver had to go out and clean it off carefully, and that did it.  Though  for some reason at some point last night it went out again.  Maybe one of these days I’ll get to pintrist and put in all the pics I have to put in there.

Well I have to run the kids around to get them moving a bit more this morning.  Have a great day.

Be Well, Be Safe, and Blessed Be…
