2 days of snow.....

Wow!  Winter is here for real I guess.  

Yesterday we got the 5:30 am call school had a 2 hour delay.  After kids are out of the shower and I'm dressed, lunches packed kitchen cleaned up ready to head out the door for 8:20. The second call comes - school cancelled for the day.  Not all in our area closed, but I guess town road crew in the town the school is located was in touch with the superintendent.  Their public cancelled too.  Needless to say the kids were thrilled, changed from uniforms to hanging out clothes and set about puttering on tidier own projects.  I changed into housework clothes and started to dismantle the Christmas decorations.  Now the tree sits naked in the corner.  

Today we were supposed to get a little snow a dusting."but the town oldest was supposed to have a sports event was in the 4-8" range.  So sports were cancelled for today.  Yay since we would have had to be up and out of the house by 7 am.  Well, snow started earlier than forecasted and we had an 8" dusting at our house!  

Yup - another day of puttering, napping and Netflix.  Naked tree still in the corner of the living room.  

Frugally speaking things went well.  Spent no $$. Other than topping off gas tank when I went out this morning before snow.  Ate from home (hubby has decided that Aldi pizzas are the way to go - and picked up some on his way home last night). I finished up the ham & 15 bean soup.

  1. Nice surprises for you all around! Our town didn't delay school on Friday - which was an awfully bad call IMO. The main road to school (Route 10) was not good at all! Apparently, the high school agreed with me, since my oldest daughter said administration was allowing students to come in through second period without being considered "tardy". Enjoy your Sunday!
