March Break

Well, it’s a good thing the schools call the break “March Break” & not “Spring Break” because so far, we have seen no signs of spring!  Two weeks ago, the kids had a week off school for March break, & while the weather wasn’t terrible, it wasn’t really the kind of weather you send your kids out to play in either.  So, we busied ourselves with cookie baking, farm visiting, & play dates.  Then the kids went back to school (hallelujah!), but it only lasted for 2 days.  Last Wednesday we had a blizzard, we got 21” of snow in a 24 hour period adding to the snow which still has not melted from earlier this year.


Due to Wednesday’s blizzard, school was cancelled Thursday & Friday as well.  Saturday & Sunday things went back to normal, but we had snow, ice pellets, rain & freezing rain Sunday afternoon & evening.


The kids are home from school again today due to the ice, & we are also under a winter storm advisory again.  We are having more freezing rain, & they are talking about school being cancelled tomorrow too.  More snow is expected tomorrow as well, up to 12”.

So far the city has had 154” (12’10”).  I guess if we’re going to have more snow, we might as well try to go for a new record, eh?  But I am ready for the kids to go back to school!
