OT March Roars in like a Lion!
Surprise, surprise...we're having a snowstorm on the second day in March. It's very pretty out with big, fluffy flakes and the trees look quite lovely. Thankfully it isn't windy out. WNY is famous for our March storms. Glad I have the day off today, I hate driving in the snow. Well, as I would tell my preschoolers, today is a lion day!

Really? Wow, I live in St. Louis and we had a record-breaking temperature of 77 here yesterday!

I was kind of hot and sweaty all through class since out AC is controlled in Kansas City. I was praying for snow.

We had early closing/scool cancellations today, too, because of the snow. Let's hope the lamb is planning her entrance pretty soon!

Yeah, we got the Lion yesterday. Hail, followed by sleet, followed by snow and driving winds. Lovely. :rollseyes:

I'm with Ingrid -- bring on the Lamb!!!
Is this a cat toy? No, it's a sock disguised as a ball of yarn.

I just asked DH to stay over in Ohio rather than try to get home today. We've had white-out conditions here off and on all day. The plows can't keep up. But my kids are still in school... :rollseyes:

I wake up this morning expecting snow, and I look outside, there is just a little bit of wetness on the road and a smidgen of ice on the trees. They cancelled school for THAT??

I posted about our storm in my blog... it nearly wiped out my SnB last night. Winterpeg definitely earned its nickname yesterday... mild winter for like 3-4 months, and then a huge dump of snow on the first day of March! Go figger!

It snowed really hard here in Western Mass for about an hour and a half, and the just stopped. I was really disapointed - they put stuff down on the sidewalks all over campus like they do for a big snow storm. So now it smells like rot everywhere and we only got about 3 inches.

We've had a record high winter this year. It's supposed to rain this weekend, that's about it. I'm getting that spring itch which is even worse seeing we don't have a house yet.
We're all adults here. Wait, when did that happen?!?! And how do we get it to stop?!
