We were told there was going to finally be snow here in Wisconsin last night. They lied. It just started a little bit ago. I guess that just goes to show that predicting the weather is not an exact science.
My boys will be super excited that we finally have some white out there. One of the things they absolutely love about Wisconsin is the snow. When we first moved here, about ten years ago, I used to tease them about wearing their snow boots. Every time they wore them it snowed. It got to be that they wore them almost all Winter to make it snow. Cian would tromp around the kitchen in his snow boots just in case Mother Nature didn't see them on his feet. His pounding was an assurance that she would notice and keep the snow going. When I would tease yell at them to take them off, they would just giggle and run around the house yelling, "Snow! Snow!"
I think those days are over for Aidan now. It's not that he doesn't still enjoy the snow, although that might change now that he's driving. I think it's more that he is more interested in maintaining that cool teenage persona he has developed. After all, it's not cool to get too excited over things.
But that is another story entirely.
For those that have forgotten what snow is - since it's been so long here - remember to drive safely.
