Her var snestormen i hvert fald mere storm end sne. Domen har fået blæst et par sider af, og vasketøjet er tørt.Børnene – og jeg – der forventede sne i store mængder, og helst så meget at man kunne forsvare at blive hjemme fra skole, er skuffede.
Det er så hyggeligt med sådan en snestorm, så man kan blive hjemme og spille og tegne sammen med mor. Og måske kunne mor så endelig få puttet nogle frø i jorden.

The news have been full of warnings about an upcoming blizzard. Advice on what to bring in the car, and alternative plans for the trains and road clearing materiel all were ready.
And what happened? The storm arrived, yessir, it ruined a patr of my greenhouse, dried our clothes, and moved some earth from here to there. But snow? not so much.
MotherOwl and the Owlets were disappointed. We had hoped for lots of snow, maybe even so much snow that the Owlets had to stay home from school, draw and play games with MotherOwl, and maybe even get some seeds sown. But that was not going to happen.
