Day 3.037: Wingardium Leviosa

It snowed today. When I measured it in the front yard a couple of hours ago it was five and a half inches. It shouldn't be a surprise for us to get a snowfall like this at this time of year, but after the missed-storms of the last month or so, we were beginning to wonder if we would get any more at all.

Today was Shrove Tuesday or Mardi Gras if you prefer. We undertook the traditional British levitation of the pancakes - the kids did some under Exile #2's supervision earlier and then, when I had battled through the snow to get home from work, it was my turn. Here are some pictures of my efforts (taken by Exile #2) accompanied by a little more music from my former life.

These were dairy-free, gluten-free pancakes (quite an achievement!). When we'd finished levitating them we ate them with lemon juice and sugar and they were very good. There were also raisins - but the kids had only left us two and I let Exile #2 have mine!
