We got snow today!

A whole inch of fluffy falling, wet snow. Until noon - then it started raining and most of it was gone by the time it got dark out. I didn't get any pictures - it wasn't really that spectacular. Instead I enjoyed the novelty of it with the kids. I let them drag their feet coming inside when we got home from dropping Daddy off at work. That gave them time to make some footprints as well as catch and taste a few snowflakes. When we came in, we made paper snowflakes and taped them to the dining room window. I'll vacuum the little paper bits up tomorrow sometime - today was just too full.

Just to see if we'd get any more snow in the next few days to replace what melted today, I googled up a weather forecast and... Well, we won't be getting much snow, but it's gonna be COLD! (at least for our area).

And for any of you non-metric folk out there (don't worry, I'm non-metric :)), that's a hi of 21°F tomorrow, and a low of 6.8°F. For Sunday and Monday, 'looks like it'll be a toasty 12°F dropping to 1.4°! on Sunday and 3°F on Monday.

So, I guess I should find all those little hats and gloves! 'Looks like we'll be bundling up for a few days.


  1. I must have been asleep when the snow came. We might not have even gotten it here, but I could ask The Mr. as he was up a lot earlier than me. I didn't get out of bed till 11:30 because I am still sleeping off my cold. Anyways, all I know is that there was so much rain that it filled Petra's dog bowl twice and it's a pretty deep bowl. Hopefully the ski hill operators are less depressed after today!

  2. Brrr... I can't even THINK that cold. And that's probably nothing compared to what you experience regularly!

    RYN: Thanks for the feedback. I don't have any issues (other than the snow getting in the way) viewing it on my blog. I chose to embed it to make viewing easier - but I'm sorry it didn't in your case! The snow is starting to wear on me though...
