Our local school system is notorious for closing at the slightest hint of snow. If you are reading this in Minnesota or some other achingly cold place, you will surely laugh. We have had to scramble to take care of our daughter at home for less than an inch of snow. A mere dusting.
But yesterday was different. Meteorologists predicted two or three inches of the fluffy white stuff. Instead, we have nine to eleven inches. For Central North Carolina, this is incredible. My daughter, like me averse to cold weather, stayed inside and enjoyed watching it fall as we built a LEGO model together, and drank hot chocolate.
And all was well with the world.
