Snow Day in March
We woke up to about 5 inches of snow today and it's a fine powdery snow. It flurried on and off yesterday but didn't really get going until about 8pm. We ended Bible study a little early to make sure everyone got home safely. I went to the grocery store at 10pm and was probably the only person buying actual groceries. A lot of college aged people were buying beer and junk food in anticipation of no school today! JMU is closed today so Mark and I took the kids outside this morning. They played while we shoveled the driveway and sidewalk. It was so cold and windy and we barely stayed out for an hour. Liam gave up quickly and spent a lot of time whining. He can't keep gloves on his hands very well and kept whining about being cold, not being able to walk well, having to wear a snowsuit......We ended the morning with some hot chocolate and a movie, both of which the kids loved.
