Snow Days

Eight. That is the number of snow days we have had this school year. 
No, we have not been getting piled with snow for days. It snowed one night. 8 inches. Thats it. Who knew that 8 inches would cause so much trouble. Nobody shoveled their sidewalks, most businesses didn't clear their parkings lots, salt wasn't spread on the roads. Everyone assumed that the snow would melt by the next day. Just like it always does. But boy, were we were in for a surprise. Everything turned to ice. The roads were dangerous and the sidewalks slippery for almost 6 days. It took people hours to get home from work, wrecks happened, trees fell, roofs caved in. 

You see, we live in the NW. We are known for our predictable winter weather: RAIN. We know rain. We are comfortable with rain. We don't cancel school for rain. We know how to drive in rain. Rain doesn't bother us, rain doesn't shut businesses down. 

Don't get me wrong, we did enjoy the snow. The first two days were amazing. We woke up full with anticipation and had an amazing time  playing in the snow. We built a fort and a few snowmen. We went sledding and on walks.... but after a few days it begun to get inconvenient. Running errands was  risky, schools were canceled, gymnastics got canceled, garbage pick up was canceled, bible study got canceled, church services were canceled... basically life has been put on pause.

But then something wonderful happened. It rained! I have never been so excited to see the rain. The  rain melted all the ice and snow within 24 hours, and we couldn't not be more happy.

I don't know about you, but I am ready for spring now ;)

Thanks for visiting, 



  1. It would be great if you reviewed Hunter shoes. Are they comfortable and easy to maintain? Are some models better than other ones? Do you have inserts?


  2. Snow is always beautiful, one day I want to feel it
