Snow Day!

2014-01-30_0004 Well, I've never made any secret of my undying love for snow. I'm Twitter friends with our local meteorologists so that when a possible snow storm is coming I can tweet things at them like "!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!" and "YESSSSS" and "Pleeeease, mighty snow wizards!!!!!" They should really unfriend me immediately.

Snow is too magical to not love it. I don't understand the people who don't love snow. I live with one of those people and I still don't understand it. If you're like Erik's grandparents who live in Johnstown, PA and are flooded with snow all the time and it makes it really difficult to get around and things are dangerous all the time, I get that. That's not so fun. But in Richmond, VA where we generally get about two inches of non-life-threatening snow that still manages to close schools for a week, what on earth is there to not love about that!?

I wanted to take pictures of Erik and Zeke in the snow yesterday, but we've been fighting colds this past week, Erik's much worse, so he didn't want to play in the snow :( It's an extra shame since it was perfect, powdery, fun snow!

Here are a few pictures I took in my neighborhood. And a few I snuck of Erik when he wasn't looking. And a few of myself doing ridiculous things with snow after bribing Erik with pancakes to take a few pictures of me.

Pancakes will get you everywhere in life.

People who don't like snow are often the same people who enjoy wearing leather jackets. It's a common affliction. 2014-01-30_0011YAY!!!!! SNOW DAY! :D
