I finally got some sleep after that, but still woke up early to a fresh coating of snow. A couple inches covered everything. I absolutely love fresh snow, especially waking to it in the morning.
Most places were closed today, as most people a little south of us got more. I saw on Facebook that some of our friends near Chattanooga were reporting 7 inches or more. We didn't get near that much, but it was enough to prevent us from trying to make it off this ridge and up the next one - the two ridges that stand between us and the urban world. This all meant one thing - no school, no work (although, he did check in multiple times during the day) = PLAY TIME!
I sat around waiting for most of the morning. Teens sleep in way too long! It was a good thing really, even though my patience had worn thin, and I thought long and hard plotting the multiple ways to wake teenagers (and my husband!) abruptly. None of these would have been nice. It was right in the middle of my strategy planning when, as luck would have it (for them!), they all roused from dreamland. I gave them a few minutes to shake the cobwebs then Clover and I began insisting that we go out and play. It didn't take much to convince them, and we were all out in the snow in no time.
