Crazy Snow!

Yesterday morning on the news, they were calling for 1-2 feet of snow for today. Last night, all of the schools were closing in anticipation for this blizzard, even though there was no snow yet.
Well, this morning I woke up to this...
this is what it looks like out my front door.
This is the view from the back door. You can see how close our neighbors are!
There's actually a house directly behind us, too.

So, it's a snow day. Our homeschool co-op was also cancelled so, we're staying home. I know my kids are dying to go out and play in all of the snow. I'm not sure I'm ready to brave it but, we'll see. On days like this I feel like curling up by the fire with a cup of tea or coffee and take a nap. But, the nap part rarely happens. We will finish our school work and see what the rest of the day brings.
Maybe we'll make some snow cream later.

What do you like to do on a snow day?

if you're making snow cream, then i'm coming over! or at least I wish :) by the way, from the pictures out your door, where you live looks like something I would just love :) do you live right in the city?

Yes, pretty much. The area we live in is pretty residential so, it's kind of like a little neighborhood which is nice but, our street is pretty busy.
