We live in Alabama, where each year, we typically experience 3 seasons. The school books would say 4, but generally, its cool, warm, HOT, repeat. So when local meteorologists predicted snow for this week, most didn't think twice about it. It's a nice thought, but it won't come to pass kind of thinking.
However, by 12:00 noon yesterday, it was what we Bamians would categorize as a blizzard. For real. We're talking snow EVERYWHERE! Like, a whole TWO INCHES or so! ;)
Which called for snuggly clothes and school letting out early! But, not early enough to prevent havoc on all major roadways. It took me about twenty minutes to drive the normal 3 minute drive home. Wrecks everywhere, roads closed, people being stuck at work/school. It was a disaster. I have NO idea how you Northerners do this with such eloquence.
But, despite the frustration the snow was causing many adults, it was so magical for Perry. He had an absolute blast!
From balling up the snow, throwing it, kicking it, making an obligatory snowman, and clearing it with his heavy machinery, this little boy could not get enough!
His smile was as bright as the snow!
Justin and I were FREEZING!! Afterall, we don't exactly have much 'winter wear' stocked up in our closets. Soaking wet Ugg boats were as good as it got for me.
But seeing the wonder in Perry's eyes made it all worth it.
Though your sins are like scarlet, I will make them white as snow. ~Isaiah 1:18
