snow globe

I know so MANY people are so over the whole snow thing. Novelty worn right on off. I mean, it is February already and snow has been around for 3 months for most folks. Shoveling, cold, wet, traffic issues, travel disruptions, etc ...

Here in the UK cities we get a sprinkling here and there, but nothing that sticks or crunches under one's feet.

But today was different.

It was sticking. And really coming down from all angles. Giant, fluffy cotton balls. It looked like we were in the middle of a snow globe that had been shaken. Hard.

So we went out to play today and enjoy the rare white world.
  • slide down the hill on our bums...
  • watch eager snowmen being made -- the ones with sticks and a bit of dirt cuz the snow isn't deep
  • throw snowballs ...
  • get wet gloves ...
  • admire how many other people were doing the same thing at 4 pm on a Monday
  • take a bite out of a fresh white, clean snow
  • watch Mark's face turn into a gleeful 8 year old
  • play!
