So here's what it looked like this morning! YUCK!! It's been snowing and blowing all morning.

I thought April Fools Day was bad. This is worse!!

I had taken the winter coats down to the laundry room last week but hadn't had time to wash them yet, thank goodness. I made the kids put on the winter coats and boots this morning, which they were not thrilled about. Oh, well! Winter has been extended. I don't believe I received that memo. If anyone else did, please forward it on so I know when I can expect Spring! Or maybe we're just skipping it this year???

Me: Put on your winter coats, boots, hats, and mittens.

Tanner: Why?

Me: Because it snowed last night and it's only supposed to get to a high of 38.

Tanner: How can it snow and be Spring at the same time?

Me: Because we live in here, that's why!!

Also, only here can you have a winter storm at the same time that the sump pump is still pumping out water from all the Spring rain we've had!!! CRAZY! Btw - all of Sunday's snow had disappeared by Sunday afternoon, so this is all NEW snow!

It is snowing here but just blowing around. Nothing is really sticking (YET). It is only 27 degrees right now! BRRRR!!

I don't even think I know where I put the kid's winter coats. Uh-oh

When I picked the kids up from school it was 16 degrees!! It was warmer this morning when I took them to school, 21 degrees!! And it was snowing REAL GOOD when I left to pick them up but stopped abruptly while I was waiting for them! Crazy weather!

HA! Because we live in SD! Good one. I packed Alex's winter coat away a few weeks ago but dug it out for this splash of cold weather. He refused to put it on this morning (and I really didn't blame him) so I said go ahead...walk ouside. He didn't make it more than two steps before he was back inside asking for his coat!
