Thursday last week I came upstairs about mid morning, passed a window and then gasped.
"Is that SNOW???" I horrifyingly thought.
Why, yes, yes it was. Ugh.
I was warned it snowed here. Snowed a lot. Snowed early. Snowed for months. I thought I was prepared. Alas, I wasn't.
The snow continued all day. What started with a dusting and ended in a good white blanket of snow.
I was too in shock the first day to pull out the kid's snow clothes (at least I had some right...well we were missing one pair of snow pants and a pair of gloves, but we improvised). Instead we cuddled inside and had popcorn for lunch and grilled cheese sandwiches and tomato soup for dinner.
However, the next day when the snow was still liberally covering the ground, I couldn't hold them off any longer.
That much snow and you have to try to make a snowman.
Obviously the boys and their friend were undaunted by the snow. In fact they were ecstatic.
When the snow melted by Saturday they were a little bummed. I could with confidence tell them that the snow would be back.
Welcome to Idaho. Welcome to a long winter!!! I am gonna need warmer socks and some long underwear.
