With our snow day on Wednesday, Cora, Gwen and I dressed up in our winter clothes and went out to check out the snow. Correction, they went out in their winter clothes. I put on an extra pair of socks with my tennis shoes.
The first challenge was making it out of our breezeway.
And things didn't get much better out on the street either…
But then we trudged on to Gwen's school, where the girls took a romp thru the snow.
And while the city was making sure that it got the main roads plowed…
They really hadn't gotten around to doing the side streets yet.
Speaking of digging out, after out walk, Cora and I took on the task of digging out that breezeway.
No, this isn't what I wore on the walk, or for the shoveling, just for the photo ops.
And while we were out walking, I pointed out to Cora an example of what we in Chicago call, "dibs". If you shoveled out the spot, you can claim it with "dibs" and no one is supposed to park there.
And woe unto he who violates the "dibs code".
