First Snow Day

Friday was our sons first Snow Day ever, the first one where his school was closed for the day. He ended up playing computer games and watching T.V. all the time asking if he could go out and play in the snow.

Now you have to understand that this was not just a snowstorm, this was a huge snowstorm that actually caused Hamilton to shut down. Even the Bus system stopped running. It was cold and not actually a safe time to be outside, and yet that is all he wanted to do.

Eventually the weather calmed down a bit and we went outside for maybe 20 minutes to a half hour before a weather warning flashed on the T.V. telling everyone to get inside. Just as we started in the wind hit again so we were actually quite lucky that we went out when we did.

This is what it looked like trying to look out our windows, and he still wanted to go out into it.

Here is the snowstorm calm enough for us to go out into. Yes this is what it looked like when we were out in it. Can you tell this is a street with houses all down it, oh and a large apt. building just past the tree. What you see is a street full of snow and that is about it.

Here we are out playing in a snowstorm. It is in the middle of the day, and it is dark and well kind of hard to see. What makes this picture fuzzy is all the snow falling.

We came in and what do you think the first thing he asked was? “Can we go back out and play in the snow?”
