Day 3.331: Freak of nature
Strangely, it seems that we were in a very small pocket of the area that got a decent fall of snow. Both Albany itself and the area where I work were virtually (or entirely) snow-free.
When the girls got home from school, Exile #4 and E5N1 finished up their snacks and went straight back out - they spent some time sledding together down the small slope in our back yard. On one occasion...well I'll let them tell you.
Exile #4: I was getting the sled ready for [E5N1] and suddenly I felt myself moving and I was lying down on the sled and it was going down backwards and I had nothing to hold on to and it was going faster and faster and I was looking everywhere for something to grab...
E5N1: And I called out, "[Exile #4] are you OK?" and she said "Yes!"
Most of all, I'm just happy that this winter E5N1 seems to be enjoying the snow - mostly, I suspect, because he finally seems convinced of the merit of keeping his mittens on.
