Yesterday when we woke up all the kids wanted to do is to see if we got snow. There had been a 40% chance overnight, but usually it breaks up, and we almost never get snow before January. I told them they could look, but not to be too disappointed if there was none. They were so excited, THREE inches of snow! I was surprised. I was also excited to find out that the car that had been put into the garage was the one with four brand new tires. Our town does not even own a snow plow, so we really needed good tires. We also do not own a single piece of snow equipment, so it was nice to have had the good car in the garage where no scraping was needed. School started “late” because of poor road conditions, but we were all there safe and on time.
