Things I Did Not Know About Snow

1. When it rains on top of six inches of snow, that soft, fluffy snow turns into six inches of ice.

2. You cannot build a snowman out of ice.

3. When the snowplow drives by, it blows lots and lots of snow next to your car (which is parked on the street in front of your house) so that you cannot open your car door or pull out onto the street without a shovel.

4. The snowbrush I bought is about as effective as getting snow off my car with a toothbrush.

5. You MUST brush the snow off the top of the car over your door BEFORE opening the door. I keep finding this out the hard way. Maybe now that I've written it, I'll remember.

6. There is not a magical snow barrier around my front porch. Everything on it is now covered with snow and ice. Why did I think that wouldn't happen?

7. The mailman really does deliver in rain, hail, sleet, or snow. I feel like I should clear a path for him because our mailbox is on the side porch of our house, which we never use so we don't clear it. Do people clear paths just for the mailman?

8. Catching snowflakes on one's tongue is a timeless tradition. (Okay, I probably did know that one.)

Lauren is so cute!

I have never lived in an area that gets snow, so it was nice to learn some new things. We plan to move to Ohio (where my hubby's from) in a few years, and I'm sure I will whine and cry and consult your blog for how to survive the winter. :D

Oh, I wish we had some of that snow here. Just some, though.

Snuggle up!
