November Madness

So, it's been a crazy couple of days!  Yesterday I was home with the boys all day.  I was in my room and I thought I had them separated because they had been fighting all day.  Then I hear a horrible bang sound and my 4 yr old started screaming!  Seems they were both in the living room and my 10 yr old "accidentally" shot his brother in the back (from only a couple of feet away) with his new paintball gun!  My world went from serene to chaos instantly!  I first thought it was a trip to the ER, that close range can really do damage on a skinny 4 yr old!  He's fine, just a major war wound to show for it and my oldest basically grounded himself, bringing me the extension cord from his room that plugged in all his electronics! 

Then, the weather service was predicting bad weather, only it wasn't supposed to hit us at all.. I woke up this morning with about 4 inches of snow and more pounding down by the second!  Of course, they didn't cancel the schools!  I drove the kids to school, couldn't even see our road!  When I got the youngest to preschool, they said that the afternoon classes (which is what he's in) were cancelled and he could stay in the daycare there all day.. Yay!  Love those charges!  It took me over an hr to get to work this morning, which is only about 20 miles away!  Then by the time I got here, there's nothing on the ground!  Nothing!  I have by now probably 6 inches at home, and 20 miles away, there's no snow at all!  Strange!  Oh, and this was the first time I think I've ever seen it thunder and lightning during a snowstorm..  Really bright pink lightning followed by very loud thunder!  Went on for quite a while..  I think we may be in for a rough winter!  At least there will be some great pics! :)
