Winter Weather: 2013 Edition

Two years ago, we bought a snow shovel. We don't get a whole lot of snow here, but big snow events aren't out of the question, so I figured it would be a nice thing to have. Well, predictably, two years later, we haven't used it once. In fact, I'm not 100% certain it's still hanging in our carport, even, or where it might be if it's not.

But what's this? Winter Storm Warning? Hooray! Is it time to finally use the snow shovel? Maybe. I don't think we'll need it, but it might make for a fun activity tomorrow morning.

Actually, here's something else we have to consider now with these snow events: day care closings and delays. Last year, the only snow event was a lame half-inch on Presidents Day morning, and day care was closed that day anyway due to the holiday. So this is new ground for us, because we've never paid attention to what local day cares usually do with winter weather before. I'm guessing that day care will at least open late tomorrow morning. But how late? (Hopefully no later than 10.) Or will they close it down for the whole day? (Hopefully not.)

Well, either way, should be a fun 24 hours! But no more than that, because I fully expect any snow that falls tonight to be completely melted by tomorrow night, except maybe in some shaded areas.

Since Duval County Schools incorporated "Weather Days" into their calendar, we've never shut down for a hurricane. Maybe it's the same with your snow shovel!
