Today is a snow day. Kevin's work is closed for the day.
The girls and I went out for a bit this morning. We took in some firewood, K decapitated her snowman from last week, and I shovelled a foot of snow off the back deck. It won't be long before there will be another foot, at this rate of snowfall.
Not that I'll be able to see it; the kitchen window is whited out:
Kevin is prowling around, a bit out of sorts because he was geared up to work today, but I am happy. I flopped down in front of the fire when I came inside. "I know it's a lot of snow," I said, "but winter has its compensations."
