There was warning that a blizzard was coming the day before Thanksgiving. I mean we even got a phone call from the city telling us to be careful and to not park on the road for snow removal. We finally got the snow but I wouldn't say it was a blizzard just a regular snow day. The kids were elated when they saw it this morning. How could they not be excited we have a hill in the backyard its perfect for sledding and I don't have to go anywhere. I can stay home and be WARM and they can do all the sledding they want!!!!
