(Edit: I just checked my blog list, and Joyce did come through for us! She must've posted sometime after I went to bed and before I got up. What a champ!)
Sunday we saw some of this:
Then, Tuesday, after I got to school this was the view:
(That white car is my cute little Hyundai Tucson!)
Here are a couple more pictures from yesterday:
(This was shortly after I got to school. Those aren't orbs, they're snowflakes!)
Unfortunately, it was all gone by the time we left to go home. I hope this year isn't a replay of last year: it would start snowing after the buses had started their routes, and, heaven forbid, the buses should have to turn around and send the kids back home.
As I was leaving, I noticed this on my car:
I grabbed my camera and snapped a picture. Every day, every kid in the school takes a walk around the parking lot for 5-10 minutes. Apparently, this icicle was a hot topic of conversation with the 3rd Graders today! These are mountain kids, remember? They are easily amused!
Breaking news: I bought my first Christmas gift this weekend! Yep, I'm really on top of things. Call me a scrooge, but I hate feeling that I have to buy for people because it's Christmas and I'm expected to buy things. Don't get me wrong, I really do like to shop, but I have to be in the mood for it. And, right now, just the thought of fighting crowds doesn't do a whole lot for me. Hopefully I'll start getting in the mood once the tree is up and the house is decorated. And, hopefully I'll do that this weekend. Wonder if Sweet Tea will let me borrow Princess and the boyfriend?
