This is the view from my front porch today:
For those of you who live in northern U.S states, or Canada, (or Russia!), this is probably nothing exciting to see, but here in good ol' North Carolina, things shut down when we get more than a few inches. (Hence, why I'm off work today, yippee!)
So this is pretty spectacular stuff.
And what makes it even more fantastic is that some of mine and Jake's best friends live in our same apartment community - so we get to enjoy the snow day with them! Ah, it's gonna be just like college again.
Our friends Courtney and Rachel live a few apartments over, and we'll all be going to their place in a little while for a big pancake feast.
(I collected some fresh snow earlier to make snow cream, too! Yumm!)
And then our friends John and Jay live directly across from us:
(Didn't have a hat for my little snow guy, so photoshop helped!)
And of course, my kitty has already ventured out into the wintry curiosities a bit today, too:
Isn't he adorable with his (actually, my) little scarf?
Anyway, you may not care too much about any of this, but I'm having so much fun with it all, I just had to post about it!
Jake is outside now as we speak, sketching some images of the still-falling snow and the hooligan children running amuck in it, so I'll be sure to post those illustrations once he's finished.
Have a beautiful day, everyone!
