covered with a quilt of snow.

Announced by all the trumpets of the sky, Arrives the snow. —Ralph Waldo Emerson

Oh boy, did the snow ever arrive with trumpets this week.  Seriously, the governor of our great Wisconsin says that we are in a state of emergency.  Like I mentioned, we did have a snow day on Wednesday {the most blissful Wednesday the whole year} because colossal amounts of snow dropped on Tuesday night.

So, on Thursday, my crazy future in-law family and I went on a sleigh ride.  We had the tickets for about 3 weeks beforehand and we weren't going to cancel due to the snow and cold. The whole week beforehand, we were all checking the weather channel seeing how cold is was actually going to be.

Well on Thursday, the  high was 4.
 4 degrees Fahrenheit.

We were nuts for choosing to go out in the cold for an hour and willingly ride on a wagon. But even though Chad and I couldn't feel our toes for about 1/2 an hour after we got back, it was...fun. We all laughed about the cold, all the cars driving slowly behind us, and how my future BIL's beard was full of icicles. While on the ride, Chad sweetly said to me, "Next year when we do this, we'll be married."

P.S. Listen to White Christmas "Snow". 'Tis delightful.

So I think you should know I'm your 18th follower... and you are my 18th follower. We were obviously meant to be friends. 8)

Oh snow, I'm so done with it already and we haven't even had much where I live, but expecting more this weekend. I need to move asap.

You are crazy for going out in that weather. Seriously crazy. But as long as you had fun and didn't lose any body parts to frost bite, that is all that matters! Btw, Chad sounds like a super winner.
