We got 5 inches of snow and more coming. No schools open in many surrounding counties. We went next door to build a snowman and play in the snow with our 2 year old grand daughter. They had no boots for her to wear. So we put plastic bags on her tennis shoes and tied them at the ankles with string. Then we pulled her pants legs down over the bags and wrapped some duct tape around her ankles to keep snow from getting into her pant legs. It was a nifty idea and worked like a charm. Kept her feet dry so she could have fun with grandma and grandpa.
Five inches of snow! Up here in Canada we now have twelve feet high Snow banks and more Snow expected before this Winter is over!
There is no more place to dump the White stuff! In the Montreal area, twenty roofs have already collapsed from the weight of the Snow!
I believe your plastic bag snow boots is a clever idea during an emergency, but plastic creates a slippery pair of boots and I do not recoommend it be placed on the feet of small children. If at all possible, find Rubber boots and place then over your child's shoes.
With winter coming to MN, it's time to get prepared with warm clothing. I learned this when the kids were small: Cut the foot off a pair of old tube socks. Then slip the tube part over the top of their boots and no snow will get in when they are outdoors.
