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!
