We have been getting quite a bit of snow this past week (in fact it is snowing right now). On Sunday the kids got to get out and help daddy shovel our driveway for the first time. They had a lot of fun and it was nice that we had enough snow that the fact that our yard is just dirt didn't matter. I am not sure how much help they were, but they sure had fun with Daddy and snow.
And yes the people across the street are U of U fans, but they are very nice and we like them anyway.
