Mother Nature must be confused...

She certainly seems to be having a hard time figuring out that it is supposed to be SPRING!! This is what we woke up to on the last day of March here in Yankton...out like a lion, I guess.

There was one good thing that came from it...I got a call from my boss at about 7:30 a.m. to let me know that they had decided to close the College for the day and that the public school was closed as well, so Kaitlin and I both got the day off. The administrators must be just as plain SICK of winter, too, because Yankton virtually NEVER calls off school. It was the first time this winter.

Justin called from work once he heard it on the radio to make sure we knew and suggested that perhaps he and Kaitlin could make a snowman when he got home from work.

So, for the rest of the day, I heard, "Mom, is Dad home yet?" about every five minutes!

The snow was definitely 'sticky' enough for snowman making. It was a super wet, heavy snow. The problem was that there had been NO snow on the ground the day before, so when they started rolling the balls, the WHOLE layer of snow came up together and any little bit of loose dirt, grass, leaves or sticks that were on the ground came up with it.

There's the makings of one dirty man...'snow'man, that is.

Did I mention that it was a very wet, HEAVY snow?

He looks happy, doesn't he? Dirty, but happy...
