In my part of North Carolina, it’s rare that we see substantial snow. And by substantial, I mean more than a few inches. You see, when we get more than an inch, cities shut down. Our area just isn’t prepared for snowfall.
Which is absolutely GREAT if you’re a kid, because all you want to do is play in the snow. And you definitely don’t want to go to school if there’s snow on the ground.
However, if you’re a teacher, you understand that snow days = less Spring Break. Kids don’t think about that part of it, though. =.) And who could blame them?!? =.)
The weather people were forecasting anywhere between 4-10 inches at my home. Depending on where the lines were, it could be a mixture of snow, sleet and freezing rain.
So, on Friday around 6:00 pm, it started snowing. It was gorgeous! Lovely, beautiful flakes of the white stuff. I absolutely loved it.
People in my office…not so much. You would think that the world were ending with just the prediction of snow. I went to Appalachian State University. That means that I had the potential to see snow from November through May. Since I’ve graduated and moved back home almost 5 years ago (has it really been that long?), I’ve only had 3 snows worth counting. One this past weekend, one last year, and I’m sure there was another one before that.
Needless to say, I don’t mind the snow. =.)
And I got some pictures of the house before the dogs and trucks ‘messed’ it up. =.)
We decided to go sledding, so some of our friends came over. A few miles from the house is a road with a massive hill. Perfect for sledding! =.)
On Sunday, Marc had to work some, so I hung out with my Mama and Miss Ava. She’s simply precious! =.) She and Mama came over to my house to walk the dogs, so when we got back to Mama’s house, and took off Ava’s toboggan (her hat), her hair was just crazy!! Love it! And my IRL friends will like this – she’s more pale than I am!! Haha! =.) And please ignore the make-upless face
Hope you had a great weekend! It’s almost here, again!! =.)
Have a happy day, y’all! =.)
