Sorry there aren't more updates -- we're busy grading papers, helping Santa, writing nominating letters for the teacher of the year, creating bulletin panels for church, organizing a baby shower for Maria's teacher, shoveling, and implementing the point system for the Nurtured Heart Approach that we're trying with our kids. (Day 1 of the point system was great--near-perfect behavior from everyone.)
I will say that our official snowfall total in Winona was 21.2 inches, including 16 inches in a 24-hour period. I don't know how they're getting that measurement, because my snow-depth measurement (in the middle of the huge empty parking lot across the street) came out at just under 17 inches. But maybe they adjust for subsidence or something. I'm no meteorologist!
