For the Love of Snow

Yesterday our local weather forecasters predicted our first snow of the year. They hinted of a slight dusting earlier in the week but this time they were serious. There was talk of anywhere from 1-3 inches to up to 6 inches possibly! Now down here in the South we don't throw around the "S" word lightly. We don't see it often and we don't joke about it. There is no milk or bread to be found in this town!

My sweet children were so excited. We had to take them out of town last year so they could see snow for the first time. They were making big plans for the snow angels they were going to make in the yard this morning.

This morning, this is scene we woke up to! Notice there is no 1-3 inches of snow on the ground.

There is a slight accumulation on a nearby roof so naturally our cheerleading game was canceled and everything in the city is shut down for the day :)

Shortly after 9:00 this morning, we did start seeing some snow fall! I hope you can see what my children saw. My oldest daughter Abby came running into the room and yelled, "Mommy, it's snowing!" Can you see the tiny flakes falling? And we wonder why the north still hates us?
