January 20, 2012


School cancelled.
Church cancelled.
Hats on.
Coats on.
Sled out.
Friends out.
Snowballs at the ready.

How cool are two little boys
who go out in the snow
without shoes
to show how tough they are.
And get locked out.
The dad's evil laughter echoed through the land.

The snow began on Saturday
and continued coming down until Thursday.
It turned to rain today
and the beginnings of a big slushy mess.
I think the last time we measured it ourselves
it was at eleven and a half inches.
