The snow officially made its appearance on Sunday but wasn’t a very impressive show. At only 369 feet, we didn’t get much. Although it continued to snow off and on for three days, we didn’t have that much, it would just melt in between the very short snow showers.
But last night was forecasted to be the “Big One”. While it did start snowing at about 4:00 yesterday afternoon and didn’t stop, we still didn’t have any snow on the driveway or on our garbage cans when we went to bed…
I had lost hope completely and wasn’t holding my breath on school being cancelled for Zack and Andy in the morning. The forecast was calling for rain by 8am and 40 degrees before noon.:o(
I woke up at about 6:10am and couldn’t go back to sleep. I figured I might as well take a peek out the window and see if it had stopped yet…
It is amazing how quickly even teenage boys get out of bed when you open their door and say, “Look outside. It’s snowing!”
It’s like a candle made out of snow
It was just too beautiful and enticing to not enjoy! Despite the dark and early hour, we all donned our snow gear and headed out to play in the snow!

Watching the sun come up doesn’t seem so bad when you’re out in the snow! ;o)
About the time the sun came up, the rain started… Just a light rain though.
It looks like a lot of snow, even in the light!

Unfortunately, our poor woodshed couldn’t take the weight of all the snow and the water… The boys thought a car crashed into something or a firework went off.
