Happy Snowy St. Patrick's Day to all. Wear your green pjs in the house and pet your dog and cuddle your cat. Three days until the first day of spring and there is a fresh, thick blanket of snow on the ground. Again! How many snow days this year? Will students be in school in July? Charlotte ran out onto the screened-in porch last night. She loves watching the huge flakes take hold of the screen and cover all of the brown. She even likes to scurry in the dusting that makes it through the screen, onto the porch. But, she doesn't do that for long. Just a few minutes and she's back inside, on a chair, under the heat vent.
