Today I loved the snow and the cold. The snow had stopped and was just nice and fluffy all over the house. I got to wear my cute winter clothes that only get touched once a year. The roads were clear and so life continued onward. I felt like a Christmas card today going about my business in town.
The kids on the other hand HATED the snow. I bundled Harmon up all cuddly and was going to let him play just a little this morning while the twins were asleep but he got out there, screamed while I took a picture and ran back in. That is my boy! The twins only peeked out quickly for a picture with Miriam (we were so worried about them we ran outside took a picture and ran them back in all within 30 seconds) but nevertheless Callum protested. Only Rachel was crazy enough to want to go out and played. She let us know every few minutes.
No one wanted to play with the snow in a bowl but w/some creativity we kept everyone very happy today. Harmon even got to see the office today and have lunch w/Daddy and I. Tomorrow our Meetup group has plans so no cabin fever for the critters. The whineist of all though has been Chris. The city government has been closed so no inspection and of course none of the trades want to be outside so he is very concerned about the homes falling behind schedule. He thinks he has it hard... he should have hung out with me yesterday!
The only negative is that we are still having power outages (thank Heaven's for Steve Jobs b/c our only light was the iphone and my Ibook) but oh well... You can't change mother nature! You can only embrace the moment and dream of the Carribean. Come Sunday life will be normal back in the 50's and Monday it will all be a memory. Hopefully we have some good memories along with the bad.
Blog Note: Tomorrow is Rachel's big meeting to make a plan and figure out what services will help her most. Wish us luck. I'm so nervous... it is 11:30 and I'm wound up to a 10. Hopefully it will go well. I'll update tomorrow as soon as I can.
Oh and I promise, no more weather posts!!!!! (At least for the near future).
