Bev & Gerry, the Super Bowl and the Weather

Tina's parents, Bev and Gerry, traveled to Windsor to see the boys. They arrived shortly after 9 am, just as we were finishing breakfast. Corbin and Jeremy were quite happy to see them, running to the front door to greet them. Bev missed her grandchildren and was happy to spend some time with them. It was Super Bowl in Detroit, so Tina and Adam made a joke about Bev & Gerry winning tickets and that's why they came down.

The weather forecast called for rain changing into snow and about 4 to 6 inches of snow. Well, it rained until 2 pm, when the rain slowly switched over to snow. We got snow, but nowhere near the amount that was predicted - about 1 to 2 inches. I guess the area from Owen Sound to Barrie to Parry Sound got hit real hard though - at least a foot of snow. After 5 weeks of no snow, it was more of an inconvenience.

Bev & Gerry headed out Sunday morning. The weather appeared okay. It was not snowing and the sun even poked through every now and then. The boys had a good time - having someone to play and bother. And we got a break for a few hours.
