Yesterday's snow was an unexpected surprise and delight. The 500Jerk family got out early to make snow angels, slide down hills on cookie trays (we have GOT to get some sleds), and have a snowball fight. Given that my southern-born children have no idea how to make a snowball, I have an advantage when it comes to snow warfare. We checked the chickens to see what they thought of the snow (they seemed unconcerned), tromped through our neighborhood soaking in the winter scenery, then came home to light a fire, drink hot chocolate, and watch the inauguration. A fun day.
