And the snow has begun...

I am delighted!!



About 3:15 it started snowing in earnest . . . Big, bodacious flakes!  Within 30 minutes it has begun sticking and I am next to useless for watching it - as if it will stop any second. But the weather channel says it will get heavier and be with us until around 8:00 tonight.

I am dancing!

As I was standing watching the falling and floating flakes, the neighbors across street came home.  The mom and the daughter (20 year old daughter) stepped back out of the carport, arms extended, slowly spinning with faces turned upward and mouths open to catch the flakes, stopping long enough to laugh. The joy of a rare snow is impossible to resist!

45 minutes of snow fall and the peaks of the roofs across the street are turning white. Might just have to take a drive to find a hill!
