Snow, ice, runny eyes

February came in like a lion today in Northern Vermont - snow, hail, freezing rain, you name it we had it today. The forecast was so dire last night that I made the mistake of telling the kids there might not be school today. Kid 2 claimed a stuffy nose when I told him it hadn't been cancelled (I've been battling something nasty for 10 days). I gave him a reprieve. He seems fine tonight.

The February blahs are hard to beat here on the US/Canadian border when we have this kind of whether. When the sun comes out it is so beautiful, and we get great sunsets - but when you're sick and trapped inside and the house is a mess and the kids have been penned up all day, well, you get the picture.

Here's a picture I took on a brighter day last weekend.
