It is snowing in Kansas City --- again. We are supposed to receive about 5 inches of snow after the system passes through sometime tomorrow morning. This is after the blizzard on Christmas Eve that accumulated about 9 inches of snow and another 2 inch snowfall last weekend. The temperatures have not been above 20 degrees since Christmas, so no thawing has taken place. The high -- the HIGH on Friday is supposed to be zero!!
While we normally have snow in Kansas, and some years we have had a fair amount, there is a typical pattern: snow a few inches, then two days later the temperature spikes to 40 degrees and it all melts away. This weather pattern is highly unusual for us, and I must say, it does nothing for my belief in global warming (typo corrected -- thanks Rodger!!)
The good news is that we had a snow day today! This is the first time in about 3 years and I was incredibly excited! I spent some of the day trying to get ahead on lesson plans (with the hopes that I can read all day tomorrow) -- but I did manage to go outside and take a few pictures of the dogs frolicking in the fluffy stuff. Sure wish I had a fur coat to keep me warm!
This picture just cracks me up! While I am quite sure Jude is just in the middle of a yawn, it appears as though he is screaming, "I've had enough!!!" --- echoing the sentiments of several midwest inhabitants this week.
