I need an IV of Diet Coke.... STAT!
The Blizzard of Oz!
It all started the other day when Bruiser told me about all the ways he could make it snow...
by turning his pajamas inside out, flushing ice cubes down the toilet, sleeping with a spoon under his pillow, and doing the Snow Dance.
Needless to say, his siblings immediately joined in on his wishful thinking.
I even had to make sure they didn't actually believe all of this nonsense. They quickly reminded me that God makes it snow. (God and I are going to have a chat about that one when I get to heaven. Snow is pretty... about once a year. I am sooo over it.)
Two days later, we woke up to a blizzard. The city shut down and we started to feel like shutins. Oh, the kids loved it. Funny thing, they weren't out in the blizzard clearing the driveway or walkway. They didn't change their socks and pants several times. They didn't have snow blowing in their faces and taking their breath away.
The next day found us with around 10 inches of snow. Oh, and a snowblower that stopped working partnered with a broken shovel.
Nonetheless, the kids were full of smiles...
The snow piles are almost as tall as Sweet Pea.
OK, Spring... you are welcome to join us ANYTIME!!!
