A Mason snow day

We got a "Mason" snow day today. A Mason Snow Day is not your average snow day. Anyone who lives in Mason knows about the Mason Bubble, which is the apparent but invisible bubble that shields us from pretty much any and all precipitation. Is it pouring rain downtown? It's sunny in Mason. Did Indiana get 7 inches of snow? Well, we didn't see a flurry here! Time and time again, we have literally watched these horrible red lines of storms- snow or rain- come right at us on the radar only to dissipate and break up right when they hit us. It's VERY weird but true. Ask anyone! Haha! So, today was no different. The weathermen called for 2-4 inches overnight and we woke up to find nada. Took the kids to school only to glance outside at noon to see a complete white out. For about an hour, it snowed like crazy and we got about an inch. That's about all we ever get around here, so my poor kids think that's snow. *sigh* I spent 6 years in Michigan and a few more in Denver, THAT is not snow. ;) One day we'll show them.
All decked out and ready to go:

Jack wonders if this is really necessary?
Snow angels! Sort of.

Neily, Cameron, Hannah, and Jack freezing their rears off:

That is a sad state of affairs.....We are having a blizzard right now! If your kids need snow, bring them north, we can show them what real snow is all about. Don't get me wrong, we lived in Indy and did not see much for years, but as kids we grew up with Lake Effect Snow.....now that is serious! I am typing this as Nick is heading out the door at 9:30 pm to crank up the snow blower for the second time tonight...

Jack's pants are from Target, Neily's outfit was OshKosh from TJ Maxx. That will probably be the last time they see the light of day this year!
