Newly Fallen Snow

They've been dying to play (read eat) in the snow for weeks.  
Finally, their wishes were granted.      
We got 2-3 inches today and, in typical DC fashion, schools were closed early and all drivers lost their minds.  Honestly, in their attempts to drive more safely people do the craziest things.
This city is always completely paralyzed by even a hint of snow.  
Many schools simply cancel school in anticipation of snow and several did this morning...just in case.
 
Today was the last day of school before winter break.  Now begins the fun part of school vacation, keeping everyone happy and from going mad with boredom.
 They ran around outside for about 80 milliseconds and then 
begged to go where it was warm.
I want to believe they've gotten snow time out of their systems, 
but I know that is a fanciful hope.
I guess we'll have to invest in snow pants and boots after all.

I had to laugh about the 80 milliseconds of play. Isn't that always the way?
