"If all of this rain was snow, I bet we'd have a foot by now!"
Really, I think we would have more! They're craving the snow! It doesn't help that Libby was invited to go to Wintergreen this weekend to ski with her best friend, but can't go due to other commitments and big brother and sister just turned in their paperwork to go on their youth group ski trips with our church. It's all they can think about. The only hills in site are on the golf courses. I have the inside scoop on how the PGA Pros feel about kids careening down their slopes on sleds. They don't like it much but kindly look the other way for the sake of safe sliding.
The thing that drove me to the computer to blog about snow is the ritual that is going around our children's school as well as our church. It's fairly similar to the snow rituals in the rest of Virginia (maybe the rest of the country) but with a Williamsburg twist!
Williamsburg Virginia Snow Ritual:
To get it to snow, well enough to get at least one snow day, you must follow these steps:
Wear your pajamas inside out!!! Do it! Don't whine about how it feels or how silly you look!
If you really want a SNOW DAY, you gotta be willing to be uncomfortable!
Sleep with a spoon under your pillow. DO IT! Come on, people! We want a snow day!
I'm not sure what that stands for; maybe a mini snow shovel??? Anyway, Vannie said she's going to sleep with my grandpa's WWII U.S. Army spoon under her pillow, since he's in Heaven. I guess she figures he'll put in the request for snow, for her!
Vannie told me her best friend is going to throw a bucket of ice cubes out of the window tonight!
Seriously! We're semi-desperate !!! Getting the snow gear ready just in case!!! Wish us luck!!!Sandman & Me
