Hoping for a repeat

“With luck, it might even snow for us.”
~Haruki Murakami, After Dark

To say that The Cox Clan is hoping for a repeat of the snow (or more importantly the snow days) from last week is a total understatement.  We are not only hoping, we are PRAYING for it!!  What keeps you happy during the long winter months?
