It didn't snow at all last year, nor sleet nor even get icy... but when it came to the chances of winter weather today, the weather people couldn't make up their minds- it was either going to be clear and sunny with no chance of precipitation or there was going to be a 30% chance of snow for the first time in two years... buuuuut no accumulation. Well well well, guess what we got? Snow all day long, fine and soft, and by the time school let out it was sticking here and there. My kiddos were over the moon about it, shouting "I knew it! I knew there'd be snow!" during the short drive home, ooooo-ing and aaaaaah-ing at all the snowy windshields, gutters, and north-facing rooftops.
Of course we had to get out in it, even if it was just for an excuse to cozy up to the fire and have hot chocolate afterwards, but there was definitely magic in the air... after all, it's been a long time since we've gotten to experience a First Snow!
