It is STILL snowing...

It stopped briefly, but started again around 7am this morning and it is near to white out conditions right now. The temperature has risen from 17 degrees to 32 since then as well, so the snow that is falling now is that great, wet snowman snow. Earlier it was like styrofoam. That is when Cooper and I went out and shoveled and made snow angels. I am thinking that with his final words on this video he got himself into the will!

And as my mother pointed out in the comments on yesterday's post, I did not like the snow much at Cooper's age either. I have a very clear memory of trying to go down a slide into the snow. Do you know what happens when you get to the end of the slide and hit two feet of snow? Your feet hit the snow and you stop dead. But the top of you obeys some other laws of physics and keeps moving forward, so you end up face planting right into the cold, hard, snow. Take it from me, that hurts.

Cooper is obsessed with Bob's boots. He was trying to walk around in them earlier.

They are hard to see, but these are our snow angels. And this other picture is our house this morning. Since then another 2 inches of snow have fallen. Where does it stop??
