With this on my mind, I thought it would be fun to have some ice and snow somewhere, so why not in a post?
Now don't fall for the pictures. What we call a snow day is really just a dusting of the white stuff. Sometimes it melts as soon as it touches the ground. If the temperatures get into the high 20's it will stay for a while, but even that is only a half day. More often we have what we call an ice storm. That's really just rain or sleet that freezes. If the sun comes out, everything melts even if the temps are low. The worst ice storm that I remember lasted about four or five days. I can't imagine ice or snow for longer than a week.
I did spend a week in Canada once and there was snow hip deep. It was during our Easter break; several teachers took some of the French students to Quebec where our French teacher originated.
The teens had never seen snow, so I took them to a park on the first night and let them play and run around while the other adults showered. We had great fun trying to walk in the snow--and losing then finding our shoes. After these two memories, I'm tapped for extended ice and snow.
If we get snow and ice at all, it will be interesting, but it won't last long and chances are that we will have only a day off from school. But I'll take that, and I have no doubt that the kids will also. If we do, I'm going to enjoy the day in my studio. Hopefully, we'll have electricity and I'll get to sew!
