Finally, after two years of crazy-cold-but-nonetheless-snow-free winter weather in the 'ville, we had enough snow last night to have a snow day. Unfortunately, after it snowed about four inches, a bout of sleet came through, making the whole landscape resemble a pie crust. Definitely not the "noman" making weather Jonathan wanted. Also unhappily is the fact that the snow apparently brought with it a monster that replaced my normally sweet child. I know he was in time out ten times today. Luckily Beanie Weenies and Blues Clues brought some whine-free time, but I'd better type quickly as I am certain it will be short lived.
