Here's a conversation for you -

Me - "Garrett - you heard that because of the snow storm coming, your lacrosse game got changed from 7 to 4:30?"

Garrett - “I know. I don't want to talk about it.  It wrecked the whole feng shui of my day.”

I didn't know that days had feng shui.
I didn't know that teenage boys cared about feng shui.

Yesterday was a regular spring day - partially sunny/partially cloudy.
But the weather forecast called for 7-14" of snow.
When would this snow start dumping?

Well, let's see -
We had two lacrosse games starting at 5:30 and 7:00.
So yes, the snow should come in around 4.
That would be perfect!

The coaches put their heads together and changed the late game to 4:30 to hopefully beat the storm.
At 4:30, there were clouds to the north but not one snowflake in the sky.

Here's the game at the end of third quarter -

Needless to say, the second game was cancelled and it took an hour and  a half instead of 45 minutes.
Imagine the pure GLEE when it was announced that school was cancelled for today!

A snow day should do a lot for Garrett's feng shui!?!

Here is what we woke up to -
The great thing about snow days in Denver is that it doesn't stop us.
Brian is clearing the driveway -
and then we're off to get bagels and maybe go to a movie!

Happy Spring!
Happy Snow Day!

Oh, man. Keep your snow to yourself!!! I sent the boys to school with fleece jackets on this morning, hoping we hold off the ugly weather out this way.

Lacrosse in the snow could be dangerous, couldn't it? I can only imagine it hurts more to be hit when you're cold.

Eh, lacrosse in the Colorado spring snow is actually kinda fun :)

What snow day? I am at work.
