First Snow

Good morning!  Well I am a little late posting these pictures.  These were taken last Thursday here in Christiansburg, VA.  It was our first snow of the year on Thursday night, January 17.  The school let out 2 hours early because it was suppose to snow. About half hour after getting home from picking them up at school, my hubby called and asked if I needed anything because the roads were already getting bad.  thankfully I planned ahead and had gone to the store that morning.  This is what the snow had looked like by 6:00 pm.  

The girls had a blast playing outside.  They didn't last long as we don't really have the proper attire since last year it had only snow twice.  Plus the fact that we haven't really gotten a lot.

Well we are home again today for another snow day.  I got the call from the school at 5:30 a.m.  Good Lord I love the phone notification system.  I am so thankful I signed up for that last year.  Basically if there is a delay or cancellation or if the school needs to close early you get an automated message from the school.  I don't have to worry about getting up and turning on the radio or the television for the news to see if we were cancelled.  So at 5:29 a.m. the phone rang. I assumed they were going to do the same thing and just send the kids home early today.  But is cancelled.  We have NO snow yet but boy is it cold out.  I am not sure when the snow is suppose to start but at least we don't have to worry about going out in it.   So maybe later today when the snow starts I will have more pictures to share.

Hope everyone in the path of the storm stays safe and warm.
