Last night Zach wore his pajamas inside out, flushed ice cubes down the toilet, and did a snow dance in the family room. He wanted a snow day, and he got one. (It helped that snow was falling steadily by 6:00 p.m., and that 6-12 inches were forecast.) Today the schools are closed, presumably because the city of Colorado Springs doesn't plow its roads so its citizens must be stuck at home.
The first order of business was shoveling the driveway. Garry took care of ours, and Zach and Gavin shoveled our next door neighbor's drive. Another neighbor has hired Zach to shovel hers every time it snows, and after he had a hot breakfast in his belly, that job kept him busy for a long time. Gavin and Lexi had fun making snow angels for a while, too.
Garry went to work, of course, but for the rest of us, our snow day was very lazy. Sweats and movies and hot cocoa made for a lovely day.
