The snow started falling in our part of the world as my eldest was getting his coat on to leave for school. Rob and I were debating about cycling or walking to school. Actually, Rob saw no problem with biking there, but I thought it would be silly to bike there just to have to walk his bike home. I don't trust drivers around here on the best of days so there was no way I was going to trust them on the first day of real snow this winter. I was a lovely walk and I was able to have a great chat with Parker. Of course, he is almost twelve and is more than capable to walk to school on his own, but we both really enjoy our time without his siblings.
Josie is dancing around the house singing "Let It Snow" (not the real version, something she just made up). It is kind of infectious. Days like this I am so relieved to not own a car. I don't have to worry about driving on the roads, I don't have to clean off the car, I don't have to move the car to let the plows go by, etc. It takes the suck out of snow.
