When we woke up yesterday it was raining sleet so we knew it would not be long before the snow would be falling, plus the roads were wet which meant ice!! It started snowing in the morning and it snowed ALL day. I think the news said Oklahoma City had 14 inches of snow with winds up to 60 miles per hour. There were some areas the barely had a dusting of snow and then others with a 4 foot snow drift. The kids had a good time and I enjoyed not being able to go anywhere. The down side to all of the snow was that we were unable to go to church for Christmas mass. There was an inch of ice on the ground under the snow which meant that driving was out of the question. The sun was out today which has helped to melt some of it. The kids are enjoying being able to go out in the snow and play. We are at my parents house now and Nathan is playing games with his cousins John and James. Kayla and Emily are having a good time with Annie and Claire.
