How much snow...

...does it take to close school 2 hours early?  Not much around here.  I'm trying to at least feign a good attitude about the weather for my kids' sake.  The boys were thrilled and spent a long time playing outside right after school.  The girls are happily playing inside.  I'm making beef stew ala Paula Dean, requested by the husband (the beef stew part, not the Paula Dean part), so it smells good in here.  I skidded out on the way to school this morning, forgot my snow driving skills and didn't turn the wheel against the skid.  Not a bad one and I wasn't going fast, just bumped a curb and went on my way.   

Light snow falling now.   It is lovely.  But it is cold.  And snow clothes are wet and messy.  And I'll stop there.  Happy thoughts.

It looks pretty and sounds cozy, but I'm definitely not ready for winter yet.

Love the pictures. Love the memories the kids are making.

You're right. It's sooooo cold. I wonder if they'll close school tomorrow. I'm sure the roads will be skating rinks.

I hate driving in snow. However I was kinda hoping we would get more of it in Portland for Sadie to play in it. It snowed maybe two inches and immediately rained away.

I like the picture of Ridge. He looks so carefree! And the snow is beautiful.
