We had heard the forecast–up to an inch of snow, which in these parts merits a “Special Weather Statement” from the National Weather Service. When I finally went to bed last night, I thought snow would be a nice thing but I wasn’t convinced it would actually snow. Then, this morning Haus Meister came in from taking Hobbit Dog out and announced that it had snowed and was snowing still!
Of course, it’s a wet, flurry style snow that won’t last the day. It might even be gone by lunch. But for a few brief hours we are able to see our neighborhood under a festive white blanket (except the roads, which are clear), and as I snapped some pictures with my newly rediscovered camera (it was in the van’s glovebox all along) I was able to hear that wintry snow silence that pervades an area whenever there’s snow. I hadn’t realized before how much I missed that.
Haus Meister is about to take the boys out to enjoy what little snow is on the ground. Rascal is disappointed that there isn’t enough to build a snowman, but there it is. It’s a good lesson to be thankful for what we have. 😉
