Snow in NC

I gotta tell you about the BLIZZARD in NC…

So last week( the week after new year’s)

Solveig and Sonja started school on the 2nd- Tuesday

Bjorn started the 3rd- Wednesday, but because of the cold, they all had a 2hr delay Wednesday.

I did hear that snow was coming, but they called it a “social media” event!

Bjorn said he heard we’d get hit with a lot of snow!?

Wednesday night it started!!

Of course, just in case it would be gone in the morning, we dressed up everybody to go out into it

Anja cried because her hands were covered and she just waddled around a bit and didn’t do anything

Bjorn later pulled Anja a bit on the sled

Friday was no school either!

Then Monday we thought they’d have a delay because Sunday morning it was 0 degrees! (I’ve never seen that before!!)

But, no Monday school was cancelled too!!

it’s because we live so rural, that back roads would still be hazardous for cars and the school buses if it’s a small road that didn’t get any sun…

So kids finally went back to school Tuesday!!

What an odd storm!

Now I would love snow more if......we got it for a couple days and then it got warm again! We finally got a little warm weather which is melting "some" of our snow. Looks like the kids had fun!

When we lived in Texas and Oklahoma, we would also wake the kids up to see the snow, in case it melted before morning. Crazy weather we've been having. My son in Alaska was warmer than we were (near Chicago) last week.
