School cancelled today once again!! This is the sixth snow day for us
that we’ll need to make up in May!! Took a walk in the woods near my
home in northeast Iowa very early this morning as the snow was still
falling . . . well, it’s still falling!! Anyway, love this time of day . . . so quiet
and peaceful . . . refreshes my spirit. Now to get out and shovel . . . . . .
