The threatened follow-up snowstorm missed by some hundreds of miles, hitting heavy south, with just a light dusting here.
The wife took the kids sledding on Sunday afternoon. I told them we could go today, during the snowstorm, if it wasn't too brutal with wind and falling ice, like the last little blizzard was.
The snow didn't arrive until very late in the afternoon. There had been a couple very brief dustings earlier, but the meaningful snowfall didn't hit until almost sunset. The boy decided he'd rather stay home and watch the wrong stuff on his iPad; he's taken to watching YouTube game streams of dark Roblox game plays. We stop him when we can, but he starts with something OK, and then shifts when we're not paying attention.
The daughter and I bundled up and headed to the hill. We got there as the last wisps of sunlight were probably hitting above the heavy clouds. The snow was coming down in big lazy flakes, in a heavy sheet that made the trees across the park hard to see. One other family was at the park, but they wrapped up shortly after we arrived.
Undaunted by being alone, the girl threw herself at the hill with gusto for about a half hour. Then she grew a little bored of being the only one there. She'd hoped to find a friend, since she couldn't bring one. I pointed out that it was dark, getting cold, snowing a little hard, and dinner time loomed. Also, while we and other kids were on vacation, not all parents were and the workday probably wasn't done for some. Finally, there's still a virus going on, so people aren't doing the park thing so much, just like we normally don't either.
She slid a few more times, sending one sled ahead and chasing it in the other. We slid on different parts of the hill to see if flatter was better early or late in the hill. Finally, she'd had enough, so we dusted off the sleds and returned to the Jeep.
We were going to swing by the store for a drive-up grocery run, but they hadn't alerted before we got here, so I took some time to tap this out. Now the delivery is available, so we're going to go do that.
Everyone is healthy.
