Since the snow last month, my wife purchased some sleds for the kids when it snowed again. Today was that day. We broke them out and the children screamed with glee as they made their way down the gentle slope in our back yard. Received a call from my wife's cousin in Wichita telling stories of an inch of snow per hour. They ended up with eight-inches. We got two.

Niobe enjoys the fresh snowfall.

Later, we all had a snowball fight. I secured my defensive point, quickly assembled an arsenal, and owned! There's no snow in the 10-day forecast, but around here you never know.

My car makes a great fortification and keeps ammo at an easy reach.

The insurance adjuster showed up early Saturday morning, did his thing and left. I'm expecting a check in the mail for the damages.

Unsheathed the grill - there was no damage, so grilled chicken quesadilla's for dinner. That's not the first time I've grilled in the snow.

Spent the remainder of the day camped out on the couch.

Every day above ground is a good day.

That's a dumb thing to reply to this post.

When I posted that last year, the concept I had in mind was not being burried in snow i.e. above ground.

I haven't seen snow since I was a couple of years old.

Yes! I'm so pleased someone noticed it. :)

I'm a huge PS:T fan; I still play it to this very day.

I mainly remember Echo (one of the best NPCs ever) and getting the main character to what, 63 thief or something crazy. Killed the end boss with two backstabs as i remember it.

"I'm not scared of her, i could kick a 4 year old's ass all day." Still, nice to enjoy that 'white stuff'.

So much nicer to be back in Texas where I don't have to worry about that sort of thing any more.

The boy wasn't much into snowball fights, unfortunately.

Kitty in snow is so cute!

That's likely the best picture I have of her.

So, who won the snowball fight? Glad you had some fun family time in the snow!
Did it wear the kids out?

I was winning until th boy caught one in the neck. I don't think he was having any fun.

It goes quick. Needed a re-loader.

Aaah, sledding and snowballs. My two favorite things about snow. And of course snow forts. :~)

I first read that as, "snow farts" and was simultaneously shocked that that term would come from your mouth and wondering what on earth a snow fart might be!

You know, I have a friend who writes content for a less than appropriate site, if there was such a thing as a snow fart I have a hunch he'd know what it is. :)

However, I don't want to know. :D
