It's getting a little frosty in Central NY

We are expecting our first snowstorm of the season tomorrow morning...I am praying for a snow day from school?So, what do we do with all of our snow? Snowmen are a familiar sight in Central NY during the winter months...what else can you do with LOTS and LOTS of snow? We average about 112" of snow a year, but this year we are hoping for much less.
And as I have said before, the best thing about the snow is SNOW DAYS and I get to stay home from school.
Now and then we welcome snow days that force us to stay in all day...those are good "house cleaning days" and even better if a good movie is on Lifetime and I can snuggle under a blanket with a cup of cocoa!!
But the best snow days are ones that begin with a snowstorm that ends around 9am and the sun comes out...
and we can get out of the house to go out to lunch or to shop.
Even though I don't like the snow, I can't imagine living in a warm climate for Christmas..
How on earth does Santa's sleigh land on a dry, hot roof?

UPDATE 8:00am Wednesday: No snow day....took me twice as long to get to work today...roads are slippery and icy, cars are in the ditches and a bus went off the road, which caused me to be diverted and I had to drive on the unplowed back roads...OK,OK, don't beat me up, the people on the bus were all fine. These are the snow days I despise!


  1. Hope you get a SNOW DAY!!! It's 70 here tonight on the coast...NO SNOW...just beautiful soft WHITE SAND!


  2. Hope you get a snow day. I know they had one in Texas last week. It is rainy in Georgia, I love you snowmen.

  3. Stay safe, it's supposed to get yucky out there! I couln't imagine the Holiday's without snow, either. When it's still snowing in March/April is when I feel like crying, though..
