This past Sunday we were browsing the clearance at Target.  It was pretty neat to find that they had the winter stuff on clearance for 70% off.  We have been wanting to buy a sled or something and a snow shovel just in case we ever got enough snow here.  But I didn't want to spend a lot since this side of 95 (in this area) doesn't generally get very much snow at all.  At 70% off, we picked up a snow shovel for $2.98.  They did have the nicer, bigger, better quality ones but considering we don't even technically need one since any snow we do get usually melts the same day, the cheap one is more than sufficient.  The more exciting deal though was the snow tubes.  We decided to get one of the doubles for only $5.98!  I was planning on keeping it in the box that way if we never used when we moved again, we could sell it to get a few bucks back.  Today after seeing that we really did get several inches of snow, I wish we would have gotten one more double (or at least one of the singles that were $5.08).  The temperature is not below freezing so the snow is kind of sloshy so we went out first thing in the morning.  It was wet snow but still very fun.  My husband stayed out with the boys when I came in to start heating up the water for hot chocolate (I did not have proper boots so my feet were cold and wet).  I looked out the window and saw that the snow "flakes" were more like snow "chunks" falling from the sky.  Seriously, some of them were over an inch wide and not flake-looking at all.  What is the weather near you like today?
