Finally… A Snow Day


Last night and this morning we finally had a real snow day. As any sane person would do when you get 8”-12” of snow, I first made sure to call out of work. I can’t drive all the way to Telford in this!

After that, you got to make sure you have a good breakfast for your snow day. So Jen was kind enough to make some great blueberry waffles with toasted walnuts on top. They were top notch!


Now that we had a full meal, we took a look outside to see that it was still snowing pretty good. What to do? We put on a Netflix instant watch movie on the Xbox and watch “Annie”. Good family film while the snow falls outside. Afterwards, there’s no need to power down the Xbox, so we played some video games.


Of course, snow days aren’t all play, and some driveway and sidewalk clearing was in order. So out comes the snow blower and shovels.

So now, after about 2-3 years of no proper snowfall, we enjoyed it to the fullest. Just when I thought any chance of REAL snow wouldn’t happen this year, it does. Hopefully we don’t have to wait this long again for a good snow day!
