Well, Tuesday (as I'm sure you all know), it didn't. It actually accumulated! However, the same stuff that provided a few inches of fluffy white beauty at our house, immediately turned to thick sheets of ice on all the roads in Birmingham, and shut the entire city down for a couple days. So many people were stranded and separated from their families...for hours or even overnight! Thankfully, the sun is shining, the temperatures are rising, and things are starting to return to normal.
Here are a couple pictures of our snow day.
Allow me to translate Silas' little baby thoughts when we plopped his non-walking self down into the cold stuff:
"Huh? I mean....why...."
"I mean...you guys seem to be enjoying this...."
"Look...I'll even poke it a little bit for you. Woooo!"
(Anthony "accidentally" throws a snow ball directly in his face)
"I'M OUT!! DONE! Remove me!! This is the worst thing two loving parents could ever do to a child!"
And that was that. His first snow experience. Short and sweet(ish).
Then we went inside and drank lots of lattes and kept the fireplace going. My kind of snow day!
Well that amount of snow oughta do us for a few years...
