"Pitch White"

If you haven't already heard, let me inform you: Central Texas got SNOW yesterday!!  Yes, right here in the Austin area we were graced by the white stuff.  It snowed several inches and stuck, which I have never seen here - ever (which means the 2.5 years we have lived here, it hasn't snowed).  Anyway, it was quite a sight.  We did not have a snow day (what the heck?), but we did get a two hour delay of school today.  Most of the parents at my school came and picked up their kids early yesterday to go home and enjoy the crazy day.  My poor children had to wait until after school to commence frolicking about in the snow.  Jacob announced when he came home, "It's pitch white out there!"  I love when kids mess up old sayings.  It cracks me up.  But seriously, snow in Central Texas?  It was awesome!

It's interesting to see what kids take from our common quotations.

Snow! Fun! I grew up in Phoenix and I made my dad promise that if it ever snowed in Phoenix, I didn't have to go to school that day. One morning Dad woke me up to tell me, "It's snowing! It's snowing!" and I immediately replied, "I don't have to go to school!"

Imagine my disappointment when Dad told me it was Saturday. No, I didn't get a comp day.

Growing up in Southern CA, we barely ever saw rain, much less snow! I am fairly certain they would have shut down all of SoCal if it actually snowed. Kathi, I can't imagine the disappointment of a Saturday snow day. What a dreadful trick! Even as an adult I pray for snow days.
