So I drove to Michigan, land of snow, to visit friends and show Puddin Pop what snow looks like. The joke was on me. Michigan evacuated all snow in honor of our visit and we didn't see and until we arrived home, in Virginia, 5 days later. I give up trying to figure out weather. I figure if the meteorologists are wrong most the time what makes me think I can figure it out.
So we get home and the yard is covered in about 4 inches of snow and we are unprepared. We have no snow toys, it hasn't snowed since Boog was born (2003). The kids were using pool supplies as their snow toys. The skimmer made a great launcher and it was easy to scoop up the snow and wing it across the yard and the cleaning brush was good for sweeping snow off the toys that were left outside.
I even had a friend bring her sled to Michigan (from Chicago) because I was sure I would be able to pull PP around in it...guess I should have brought it home.
On another note, the visit was great, the drinks and friends were many, and I look forward to our next girls weekend next year.
