The kids had the day off from school today for semester break. Mike took the day off so that they could go skiing. Unfortunately, the weather didn’t cooperate. The overnight low was -24 degrees and when Sebastian rolled out of bed at 9:45am it was still about 20 below zero. Needless to say, the skiing plans were canceled. So what do you do when it’s 20 below outside? You do a little science experiment – take a cup of boiling water, throw it up in the air outside and watch the water/steam form into ice crystals midair.
Mike and the kids did venture out of the house for the afternoon – lunch at Subway, a little book shopping at Barnes and Noble. They picked up a Papa Murphy’s pizza for dinner and a movie to watch afterwards. Overall, a good day off from school (and work) despite the cold.
