Snow day…well sort of!

Snow is pretty rare in the valleys of Oregon, and we only really get a snow event every few years at best. In great anticipation of the “big” snow day that we are expecting, I’m frankly not focused on our finances at the moment. Instead I’m reminiscing about childhood snow days, which are priceless.


I recall the bunny hill that seemed so treacherous, and the numb feeling of thawing out after finally retreating to the warmth of home. Hot chocolate was a must, along with soup and grilled sandwiches. I must have been an early feminist, because we always insisted on making a snow woman 🙂 


Snow days also have a funny way of changing our priorities, and suddenly nothing seems as important as savoring the snow and playing as hard as possible. I’m looking forward these kinds of traditions and memories for my kids.


Last year I wrote about cheap ways to enjoy a Winter Wonderland.


I also found a couple some fun snow day ideas on ParentDish, Snow Day Fun, and 5 snow day favorites.


As it turns out there really wasn’t much snow to celebrate, but it has been fun fantasizing…


How do you celebrate the snow?
