Fun in the frigid temps...

So, the kids were supposed to go to school on-time today, but the roads here on the North side of town were still a bit icy, and I decided to send them in later (our car-pool decided not to go in either). So at 9am, I got the kids ready to leave, and got a call that all students were to be picked up immediately, that the transformer near the school blew out, and there was no power or heat... I am soooooooo glad I didn't drive 30 minutes each way, just to turn around and do it again!

So... with yet another day off (my kids have been home since the 16th of December) we had to find something new to do...

We decided to blow bubbles in the -3F temperatures, something none of us have ever done! It was freaking cool! The bubbles would freeze and when they popped, the sides would peel apart like tissue paper! Or they would sit and slowly deflate. We are totally doing it again tomorrow morning!

We also did that cool boiling water trick, where you throw a cup of boiling water into the air, and it freezes before coming down! Neither of those things can be done in Asheville often, maybe once every 20 years!

Here is to hoping there is school tomorrow, and that our 2-hour-delay doesn't make yet another snow-day!!!
