Snowball fight at the toy store

We don’t get a lot of snow here in the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia. We can count on about one big snowfall per year, usually after Christmas, and sure enough — it showed up this week. We got about 16 inches of snow here at the store and it was beautiful.

We never close Pufferbellies for bad weather unless the power’s out, but there aren’t usually a lot of customers when it’s snowing — so we invited the neighborhood over for a snowball fight and some hot chocolate from The Split Banana. We had a great time and even got a little attention from the local paper.

It turned what’s usually a pokey kind of day into a lot of fun. I’m almost wishing it would snow some more so we can do it again! Almost.

Reminder – Game Night is TONIGHT

Don’t forget to stop by tonight (that’s Friday, June 5) between 6pm and 8pm for some fun and hijinks as Erin S. hosts our third Game Night of the year. She’ll be teaching some of our favorite 12-minute games like Go Nuts, Wig Out, and Go Bananas. Plus, we’ll be giving away gift certificates to The Split Banana, and there will be Gummi Bears all around. See you soon!
