The girls almost decided to go skiing. It was a good thing they did not. The power went out on the ski hill and the chair lifts sat dangling all day. Instead they announced a snow party at our house. There was no set time.... just come when you can and stay as long as you wish, kind of invitation.
Afterwards I recounted how many people came and went ~ not counting myself.
They started arriving at 10 AM and the last straggler left at 6:00.
I think we'll set a time next time. I got tired :-).
Anyway, the snow was used up and worn away by the end of the day.
