Let It Snow!

This was a definite surprise! We have been hearing about a cold blast headed our way for a week or so, but the weather reports have been saying that very little precipitation would be involved, with only a slight possibility of sleet early Wednesday morning. Dad and I haven't watched the news in a few days and apparently we missed some updates to that weather forecast. Yesterday, Dad had the Weather Channel on and the forecast showed 90% chance of precipitation today with a high temp of 36 degrees. They were predicting sleet and freezing rain, but the sleet quickly turned to snow - Yay!

So, although I really do enjoy the warm outside days (even though I complain on occasion ~grin~) I love getting a snowy day too! I am hoping this won't be our only snow of the year. Last year we had two snows in February, so maybe this early snowfall suggests more snow coming soon!

We spent a lot of time outside this afternoon enjoying the snow. We came in for a snow ice cream break, then headed back out for more snowy fun!
