I was excited when the forecast for today predicted and all day snow. The weather men were predicting a Federal Government closure based upon the way that the weather models were working. When we woke up at 5:30 this morning I was surprised to see that the warnings were heeded and the entire DMV was basically locked down on a snow emergency. It was 45 and raining. It was so warm that when a girlfriend suggested a run, I assumed she meant outside (our gym had closed due to the forecast).
But sure enough right at 7 this morning it transitioned from rain to sleet, and sleet to snow by 7:30. We opted to run the stairs and do a strength training workout.
With the late start to the snow, it took a while for it to accumulate. We spent the morning and early afternoon watching it fall, eating, and snoozing. Once everyone was awake, it was nearly 4 in the afternoon. We all bundled up and headed out for a quick jaunt around the neighborhood.
The girls enjoyed building their first snowman. We completely forgot all of the accessories. I feel as if it was my first snowman, too.
Isabel was fairly certain the goal was to eat the snowman. I was excited to be all together and get to enjoy the weather as a family! (Fear not, Hot Chocolate and PLENTY of marshmallows were consumed after this jaunt!)
