Unexpected winter…

Like most of of us in Santa Fe we  woke up this morning with quite a snow storm going on. We had several emotions going around our house. The teenager was bummed out that this epic storm was wasted on a Saturday. A day she already had off of school. The 4 year old was excited to be able to make a snow man.

Yes, it is the last Saturday of April but it is not uncommon for us to get Spring snows. I don’t remember the last time we had that much snow in April. We were supposed to have opening ceremonies for baseball today but thankfully they were cancelled. Although I do remember having baseball games in the snow. I guess that’s New Mexico weather for you.

I was happy for the storm cause it gave me the excuse to not have to run errands or go to town. I was able to spend the whole day home. The bad part is I am nursing a head cold so I wasn’t able to enjoy it quite as much as I would have liked.

I was able to see the secret snow cave Dada and Molly made (mostly Dada). I was also able to make a big pot of homemade chicken noodle soup and that always helps warm the soul. I hope everyone was able to stay warm and enjoy the people you had around you today.
