We don’t get much snow where I live, so when it happens, it’s a big deal. Especially the amount of snow we’ve gotten the past two days. It’s crazy! We don’t have a TV, and I don’t spend that much time researching weather forecasts (this close to the coast, they’re usually wrong anyway), so the snow seemed to come out of nowhere. It started snowing around 10 yesterday morning, and it hasn’t stopped! The last time we got this much snow was in December of 2009. It’s better this time around, though, because we have the dry, powdery stuff. In ’09, it was a very wet snow, and we got around 12 inches, then it rained for a day, then it snowed again. So we had several inches of snow, a layer of ice a couple of inches thick, topped with more snow. You can imagine how awful that was! But this year, it’s just cold, not awful, so the kids have enjoyed playing in the winter wonderland they only see once every few years.
It was Small Fry’s first snow, so it’s been fun watching him watch out the window as the flakes fall from the sky, and this morning, we let him out in it for the first time (he and I had already gone to the store before it started yesterday, and I’m not much of a snow person, so I didn’t take him out yesterday). That’s the picture on the upper right. The lower right is Small Fry wearing Seahawk’s snow jacket. Too cute!
Is your winter wonderland as white as ours??
