Yes, we had an ice storm in the middle of the night (Thursday) and those are never good. Fortunately we never lost power which I consider a miracle alone. The roads were also not as bad as I thought they would be. My wonderful husband took me into my OB appointment that morning. The kids were thrilled because they had no school. Friday was supposed to be their last day before the two week Christmas break. Guess they scored an extra day!
We already had snow on the ground from Tuesday but it had been too cold for the kids to go out and play. Friday it was a little warmer than it had been and the snow had a nice slickness to it. The kids begged me to let them go sled and I did. The snow is so slick that if they let go of the sleds they will go down the hill on their own with the child chasing close behind! Too funny! I wish I could be out there with them. There is always next year! Until then I will have to enjoy sitting here writing this blog and watching them sled out the sliding glass door beside me. They kept coming up to the window and asking if I just saw that. They were having a blast. Here is some video I took of them sledding.
