you know how people get snow storms & then have days of fun playing in the snow, making snow angels, building snowmen, and having snowball fights? well, in South Carolina we rarely get snow. instead, we get ice. you get all the cold & power outages that you do with snow... except none of the fun. but considering that we only get about 3 days each winter, instead of 5 straight months of it... i am not complaining!
since my work uses laptops, i have the capability to work from home. which means that when the offices are closed, Thomas gets a day off & i still have to work. i make some time in the day to explore with him, though! last year, we made a snow penguin & a snowman on my lunch break! this year, since it's just ice we just skated around our driveway and took pictures. we also let our basset & bunny out very briefly to experience the cold - the basset had fun but the bunny hated it! (i don't blame him!)
while i was outside snapping photos, our neighbors horse came running up to the edge of our yard. luckily he just stood there staring at me & didn't try to jump over the fence and gallop into our yard! i wasn't looking forward to being knocked onto the ice by a horse. after about a minute the owner heard the horse & came over and got him safely back into the field. it is always interesting living in the country! :)
do you get snow or ice where you live?
