I can't remember whether the snow began during the day Wednesday or while we were sleeping. Yesterday, Thursday, it covered everything. Real snow. We didn't get any real snow last year. I missed it. Yesterday I dug the car out to take the boys to school at 8. And again to pick up Jake at 11. And then again to pick up Gus at 2:30. The snow kept coming all through the day. I am not yet grown up enough to resent the snow for making my life difficult, but tend rather to resent my life for making the snow difficult. Didn't do much work yesterday, built snow forts instead. It helped that Lupe spent most of the day in conference with her girls' teachers, so I was on my own here. A good excuse for me to play hookie and get out in the snow with my boys.
