Saturday morning started like the day before with me keeping a very close vigil on the window. Nothing seemed to be happening except for the fact that it was freezing. Once the girls were up and at it, I made a quick run to get bagels and hot chocolate. I would like to add that the wind was blowing a gale at this point and it was cold. My only issue was keeping my hood on with my hands full but the day before I had purchased ear muffs as I REFUSE to wear a hat. If you are new her that situation can be blamed on private school and school hats!!! I'll wrap a scarf around my head, wear a head warmer,anything that, is not a physical hat.
Shortly after breakfast the snow started and it was heavy from the word go and it was also sideways snow due to the wind. Fantastic. I loved it and so did the girls. Since they now had ski gloves and Lily had snow boots we were truly ready to start the day. Rosie was in her fur lined leggings and was wearing 97 layers so there was no chance she would be cold. I popped open some hand warmers and foot warmers and off we went on the T, headed to Cambridge.
As we walked to the station at Tufts we elicited many comments from people regarding our joy for the white stuff. So many comments from total strangers regarding how much fun we were having. Some people even said we were making them appreciate it again.
|This photo was (obviously) taken later in the day but you can get an idea of temps. When you consider our average yearly temps are in the 80's...this is amazing.|
|And this is how I looked ha ha.|
|the snow wouldn't stick it was impossible to make a snowball but that didn't stop us from throwing handfuls of the stuff|

3pm. dark and snowy. OH MY GOD this is what I want so much
we took cover in the room for a while and observed the goings on from up high but we decided it was no fun being in the room so we went out for a walk, by now the snow was crazy.
