Today's Wonder of the World is...SNOW!!!
This entire winter the Ramsey house has been puke green with envy over the avalanche of snow pictures falling all over the internet.
Why couldn't it snow in South Town?
Just once? Pretty please?
Two times the weather-people taunted us, promising snow and a day home from school, only to wake to find green grass and a sunny sky. Again.
Saturday looked like the same old replay.
"Don't get your hopes up," we said to the boys. "Remember what happened last time?"
"Thanks Mom for squashing our dreams," Ben said.
"What about HOPE?" asked Sam.
We only got rain.
Even Tanner the Slobber Dog looked sad.
He went out to check several times and then gave up.
We'll just play inside.
When we got really bored, we played dress up.
And then, while we weren't looking, something weird started happening.
Tanner couldn't figure it out.
By nightfall there were fat flakes falling!
If you look hard at this pic you might see my boys playing in the snow. I would have gone in the yard for a better picture but I was too lazy to get off the porch.
The flakes kept falling! People started coming out of their houses!
Across the street they built a snowman in the dark!
And this morning?
A winter wonderland!
The treehouse looks like a mountain chalet!
The tomato cages, snow wreaths suspended in air!
Tanner is rejoicing!
Come on Mom! Stop taking pictures and put those plastic bags on your feet! (We have no snow boots here.) Let's go!
So we're playing today!
Have a wonder-full Monday, y'all!
Enjoy a visit from Snow Miser. And if you're one of those lucky ones who's had your fill of snow, hang on. Heat Miser shows up at the end!
