When I opened the back door to let Holden out and couldn't budge the screen door, I knew we got a bunch of snow last night. Later, I headed out to the car - I live on a snow route, so I parked on a side street last night - and it's not close to being movable. My plans to see Boys of Baraka this afternoon appear to be on hold.
At this point, 11am on Sunday, I'm not sure how we can have school on Monday. The condition of my side street seems to be impassable for a while, and my side street isn't even that far off the beaten track. I can't imagine six year olds being able to walk to school tomorrow morning. We shall see. If it's going to freaking snow this much so late in the year and so close to baseball season, I might as well get a day off with it.
I will say that having lightning and thunder during a snowstorm was pretty cool, even though I a tiny thought that we were being bombed. That passed. What was left was just the snow, which I hate if it's past December.
Crossing my fingers that this is enough snow to give me a snow day but not enough to cripple the start of tryouts on March 1.
