What a surprise this morning !!!

We woke to about 3" of fluffy white powdery snow covering everything and closing schools.
Had our first accident on the new road when a lady was driving to fast and slammed the brakes on throwing her into the end of this guard rail. This is a testament for guard rails as this one worked perfectly, collapsing upon impact and keeping the car on the road side. Thankfully the lady driver did not get hurt.
The scanner came alive around 7:30 to 8:00 with accidents all over the county. Hubbie decided to take the day off so he could play with the kids in the snow.
G-son and Little EL both love the snow and today wasn't so cold so they played outside for a long time.

I look  like the "Pillsbury Dough Boy" in my new snow mobile suit I found on E-Bay but I was very warm and dry.

Baby BB slept through the entire fun time outside this year but I have a feeling come next winter he will make up for it !!
When we came inside they were ready for a day of fun together.

All three kids were so good today, they played, they took good naps and had a wonderful together day while Re and I fixed lunch then supper.
Everyone made it for supper even #1, #2 sons and Aa who braved the  weather all day outside plus daughter and b-friend Josh and even d-in-love who has been in bed all day not feeling well.
We had a really nice visit before they all left tonight.
As we watch the news tonight I've a feeling this won't be the only fun day this week. They are predicting the biggest snowfall, 8-9 inches, of the season starting tomorrow evening.

With the prediction of less than 1" for this morning we might have a very interesting rest of the week!!
Most of this morning's snow has melted by this evening except in the very shaded areas but it is supposed to be 20 degrees tonight so anything left will definitely be frozen by morning.
Don't forget to feed your feathered friends in weather like this, it is hard for them to find food under the snow. These are the pair of little Carolina Wrens that live on my front porch.

Hubbie and I watched the UNC / NC State ball game tonight which state won.
What a wonderful day the Lord blessed me with today, I love snow and I love these kids and love to see them having fun together. Feeling humbly grateful tonight.
Good Night and God Bless.

What a lovely, fun-filled day you had. You all look like you had so much fun playing in the snow. And then to have the entire family together for dinner. Wow! Just be careful outside on the roads. Blessings

The children will not forget this fun.

I hear you may have more soon.
