Schools were closed today, on account of the weather.


Mid-afternoon, with snow coming down, Allegra made an army of little snowmen.

The snow is still falling, as I write this. All of those snowmen are buried in snow. "It shows no signs of stopping," as they sing in that Christmas carol.

School today has not been the only thing canceled. Last night was to have been the open house at the dance studio, but that open house has been postponed until January. I hope it doesn't seem too anticlimactic to be dancing to "I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus" after Christmas is over.

Oh wow.... a snow day. Sounds sooo nice! Allegra's snowmen are cute!

My daughter, "Punkin," was to have danced on Thursday and Friday for the younger girls. This is the first year she's gotten to perform--before this she WAS 'the younger girls' ;-) She had to miss it, and she is sad. She was excited that only she and one other girl would be dancing their ballet dance on Friday, but since it won't be the Friday before break when they make it up, there will probably be more girls available to dance.

As the designated driver, I was kind of happy to see it cancelled. I didn't want to have to drive up and down all the hills between here and there!

The snow is a pain here, but it's pretty while it lasts.
