Last week, we got something like 14 inches of snow in the course of one night here in Madison. The next day, the university was closed and we all had a snow day! We stayed home all day, and were able to avoid this sort of situation:
We did get to build a little snow-woman, have a snowball fight with our seven-year-old neighbor Cedric, and clear off the huge accumulation of snow on our car:
Later, over the weekend, we went on a retreat for one of Justin's classes to a 4H camp an hour north of Madison and got to go tobogganing, down a real toboggan ramp! It was pretty awesome, even though I was (a teeny tiny bit) scared and resisted going at first.
Sometimes, winter isn't so bad after all. (Even though it is 3 degrees F right now).
