The number of times we have gotten snow here this year.
Some years we don't get any at all. Some years we get a few flurries. Some years we get a snowfall that accumulates "deep" enough to leave footprints.
But this year? Four! One flurry. One that gave us enough for icy, crunchy snowballs. One good enough for a couple of snowmen and sledding. And now today...enough to keep my sweetheart from driving 40 miles to the southside to see a couple of patients. (Why drive over an hour when only 1 or 2 might show up?) Enough to keep him here with me. He's giving the babies a bath.
And I'm totally expecting the school to call any minute telling me that the boys will be sent home soon. : D
UPDATE: Kids will be sent home at 10:30! So funny.
And she's wondering, "Why did I want to come out here?"
