Snow Day

Growing up I was always so jealous of my cousin's who lived in Utah and Idaho who would tell me about all the fun they had on snow days.  I guess I never stopped to realize I never got snow days because the weather was beautiful all year long.  Anyway, today I get my first SNOW DAY!!  Here in Arkansas, the concept of snow is very different than in the West.  The whole community has shut down because of about 1''-2'' of snow.  While work wasn't entirely cancelled, we were advised to take our laptops home last night such that we could just do the essential stuff from home.  You can bet that Colby and I are still sitting in our pajamas enjoying our Snow Day, laughing at the news talking about the massive snow storm to hit our area, as we think back to being in Wyoming two days ago when it snowed about 8 inches in one day and no one batted an eye over it.  Too funny--but we will take our Snow Day gladly!

I always wish Utah had that attitude toward snow!

Of course, I get to work in my pajamas from home almost every day, so I guess it wouldn't make much of a difference for me. I'm always trying to talk Nate into figuring out something he could do from home, but then I think neither of us would ever get anything done! Enjoy your snow day!

I do have to say I really enjoyed all my many snow days growing up. They were great. I only wish I could have one now. With the condition that I was not on duty for my kids. I just want to go skiing on my snow day like I use to. I spent many a days at Targhee for snow days!!! Enjoy your snow day while it lasts, as I am sure Colby probably is in disbelief that 1-2 inches would shut anything down.

ha! I have to laugh because I just posted a blog about snow days too. We could still see the grass and they called school off! Crazy!! I guess you at least got to enjoy a day at home!!

We had a "snow day" here as well - all of 2 inches fell. They shut down the school and the eye clinic early yesterday and canceled today because there was still some ice in the parking lot. So different then Utah, but I'll take it!!!
