Snow Day

As much as snow can be a huge pain in the butt in NYC, I love a snow day. On Tuesday, Alex had early dismissal so we headed home around noon, before the snow really started to come down. I am super thankful for the early dismissal because later that day, I read Facebook status after status saying that commutes that usually take 30 minutes took over 3 hours. Later that afternoon, I got a call that the decision had been made and we were having a snow day.

We spent the two days out in the snow. We had snowball fights, made snow angels and sledded with other kids on our block.




We did some crafting. We made toilet paper roll monsters.



We ate some good stuff.

Pumpkin Pancakes.


Hot cocoa and Oatmeal Cranberry Dunkers. Both from Trader Joe’s.


Whole Wheat Couscous Greek Salad. (Recipe coming soon.)


I’m really not looking forward to driving tomorrow because the temps are super low, ice is everywhere and this snow isn’t going anywhere for a while. Either way, these two days were soo worth it!

Did you get any snow where you live? What are your favorite snow day activities?

  1. I actually really do miss snow days! I cannot recall the last time I ever had one! When I was in high school, I went to boarding school, where SNOW WAS WELCOMED – we did snow dances, because my boarding school was FOR SNOWBOARDING – lol!!!

  2. No snow where I’m at, but you make it look fun. The close up reminds me of “Christmas Story” when the kid is all bundled up to go outside. Cute.

  4. We got twelve inches or so — and while it’s definitely pretty, we’ve had so much snow already this winter and such frigid temperatures that I am totally ready for spring now! :)

  5. We got a little snow here in Colorado last night – less than 3 inches I think – not enough to close schools for sure. :) I love snow – so pretty and makes things look so clean and fresh!

  6. We actually didn’t get too much. It was a bit slippery at night just because it was SO COLD, but we ended up with 3 inches. It’s funny our town was one of two towns that didn’t call school for Wednesday. We had a regular day (and the roads were fine), the other town had a 2 hour delay. It definitely makes me happy, because when B is in school I don’t want him going to school into late June just because they called too many unneccessary snow days, ya know?

  7. Looks like you had so much fun in the snow, I live in California so no snow here :( When I lived in England we would have snow and I loved it, but it was never around for long. I think it is always fun for a day or two, then it becomes annoying.
