Adventures of Motherhood

I am a harried mother of three kids who move at light speed and a husband who lives in a world of words. If that isn't enough, I teach in an elementary school as I slowly watch my hair turn gray.

It's a snowday here. We woke up to a huge blast from Mother Nature. 50 cm yes I said 50 cm has fallen over London, Ontario and we're still counting. We are experiencing snow squalls from the lake.

I can't believe how much snow has fallen. I don't think I have seen this much snow since I was a little girl living in Montreal. It's amazing because only London was affected by the storm…. the cities within 20 km all around us did not get any snow.

It is the first time since we have moved to London (10 years ago) that there has ever been a snowday. Everything is closed and the city is paralyzed with all this snow. I don't know who was more excited; the kids or me when we heard that school was closed.

We're at that time of year where everyone really needs a break and it's hard to believe that Winter Break is almost here. I am not a winter person so having an unexpected day off makes it seem not so bad.

The kids, Carmi, Davy (a friend from Toronto) and I spent a lovely portion of the morning digging the van out, and playing in the snow. We warmed up with yummy hot chocolate. The kids and I are going to watch a DVD while Carmi catches up on his work. It was a great way to spend a snowday.

Many of you are regular readers of my hubby's blog. He has been very busy snapping photos of the snow…. watch for the pictures!

I hope whatever you are doing this fine Friday that you are safe, dry and warm.

Your turn: What is the weather like by you?
