eagerly awaiting snow....

The Swaringim household is eagerly awaiting the highly anticipated arrival of snow! They have been predicting it for the last few days. Yesterday they were calling for seven to ten inches of snow on Friday and now today its four to eight...I hope it doesn't dwindle down the closer we get to Friday.

Now this is a highly anticipated event due to our experiences while living in Chicago. The first snow fall up there typically happens on the last day of summer...well, ok - the middle of fall. And it would typically happen often enough that we would go through winter so there would be a white layer covering the ground all the time. This year in St. Louis we had one good dump of snow. Thats it. blaaaaaa.

We are excited. If we get the forecasted amount the girls will have a snow day from school. I think I will make sure all things are covered at church and take a snow day as well. In fact, if there is a good amount of snow on the ground to make a snowman but school is not called off I just may keep them home anyway. This was discussed this morning and it seems all parties involved were in agreement on that. Sooooooooooooo..................

Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow!!

No Snow. . . .I have to drive out of town tomorrow.

Though I do think it would be nice for you to spend time with the girls.

The best snow was back in Chicago...remember that Bob? It would snow 30 feet and then the next morning the roads were dry. We havent figured out how to do that in St Louis.
