More Spots

The Most Adorable Granddaughter in the World#1 rang me at 7.20 this morning to tell me that they had snow on the ground and in their tree! The Most Adorable Granddaughter#2 then got on the phone and told me, "Snow. Snow."

Obviously they were excited - and with reason. This is the first time we have had snow since 1974. It's a "One in 50 year event" and it's something to get excited about.

We even had it here where we live. Certainly we didn't have it lying on the ground as some have had - probably too close to the coast for that. But we had our own small taste of it - even if it just looked like a few white spots here and there.

And while The Most Adorable Granddaughter#3 may not have shared her sisters' excitement it was probably because she had spots of her own to worry about. Yep, the poor little darling now has the chicken pox.

Aww #3 has chicken pox too. I hope she feels better soon. We normally don't get a lot of snow here either but the last couple of years we got a lot.

Today, when I got hold of the newspaper, I noticed an article on the last page (reserved for curiosities), about the occurrence of snow in New Zealand. "I wonder how Jules and her family are doing", was my immediate thought. It must be a rare thing, since it's covered in a paper on the other side of the world :)

I know your granddaughter's excitement; I was also excited when I first saw snowflakes falling...
