Storm Ari Snow Day
Little Man built a little snow family on the grill table… (c) Kim M. Bennett, 2012.

We had our first snow day yesterday, after Storm Ari dumped varying amounts of snow across Connecticut. It was warm, and packy, and perfect for snow play. We cleaned off and re-covered the grill (after the cover blew off in the hurricane), refilled the bird feeders, then played…

Snow people, snowballs (fun for the dog, who ate them all…), and little birdie footprints on the patio furniture… Sunshine and melting mittens… suet cakes and shovels… then warm, fuzzy fleece pants and hot chocolate inside.

It’s going to be 65F on Monday. Wow.
