First Snow of the Season

It never surprises the folks around here that the schools don't seem to know how to deal with snow.  It had be predicted, with a fair amount of certainty, yet schools were not delayed or canceled in our county.  That meant waits of an hour to hour and half at buss stops, busses not showing at all, kids not getting to school till noon (when they start about 8:30 to 9:00 AM).  Parents were mad and I get that.  The county messed up because "it was suppose to start at 4:00 AM but didn't, it started a bit later.  Even the government, who takes care of the roads, didn't pretreat like they have in the past.  It was a mess, because the snow did come, just a bit later than anticipated.

We stayed home and choose to not take chances on the roads, a nice treat to stay home all day on what would have been a busy day.

Thankfulness for the day:
  • first snow fall (and no shovels!)
  • neighbors taking care of whole pipe stem
  • making chocolate syrup
 Not much, but enough to make life difficult.

 Starts of homemade chocolate syrup ~
this would be sugar, cocoa powder and pinch of salt

homemade vanilla extract for when syrup comes
off the stove top
