What’s the point of taking safety shots if I don’t use them?

Just a normal day: Internets, coursework and school run. I accompanied Lanie when she went to choir practice so I could do some more voluntary IT work at Church. At six Ginger brought the big kids down and we had supper with the Youth Group and KfC kids and parents. While Ginger went off to the ‘Star Chamber’ with the other moms for their regular ‘mom talk’ I sat out in the parish hall chatting with some of the other left behind dads (we sometimes go out for a beer so we’re quite happy being left behind). I had hopped to get some more coursework done, but the conversation called more strongly than the work. 

Back home we watched a movie (Matchstick Men) and waited for the forecast snow to fall. It had just started as we went to bed.

I took this picture on the school run this afternoon while waiting for the big kids to arrive. I took a couple of pictures at Church while I was working, but I decided I didn’t like them. At bed time I briefly considered taking another picture, but then I decided why not use the safety shot I already had? So I have.
