The Best Six Inches EVER!!!

I bet you thought this was going to be somewhat of a dirty post didn't you? You know the title and all? It's not. But truly, this is the best 6 inches of snow ever! This doesn't happen in North Carolina, or it hasn't in the 6 or so years I've been here. It has snowed 2 or 3 times, just enough to fall to the ground so you can see it, and then it melts.

This morning I was awoken to "Mom, MOM, IT'S SNOWING!!!!!!!" Which prompted me to roll over and put a pillow over my head. Because really, what's the point of getting up if it's just going to be gone by the time I get dressed? Not two seconds later my doorbell rang. Now I had to get up. I went to my front door to see my neighbor all bundled up in tons of clothes (which is really not anything exciting since she's from Miami, and can't stand the cold weather!), and then I looked past her to the SIX INCHES of snow that blanketed my yard and vehicles! WOW! She asked if we were going to come out and play. So we rushed to get dressed and we went outside for about 30 minutes to play. Needless to say we are ill equipped for the snow. All of my kids had plastic bags on inside their shoes. LOL

But looking at this picture, can you see the excitement on the littlest guy's face? He can barely stand it! Even the dog, who hates rain, LOVES the snow.

I did clean off Lucy (the burgundy car) with the broom, but it's STILL snowing! Luckily, they cancelled our appointments for the day, and the base seems to be closed down. No one's at work. Even the commissary is closed, which is bad, because I have no milk! :( I guess I Didn't believe them when they said it was going to snow. I figured it was going to be like it was the last few times.

I'm all warmed up now, and we're going to go back out and have another go at the snow!

That looks absolutely wonderful! I hope it stays long enough for the kids to make snowmen and get their fill of it! Did they go out this afternoon looking for a hill to slide down? Hide your pizza pan!

Ahhh, to be young and excited about snow...

That's awesome!!! It has hardly snowed here and we usually get lots and lots. Darned global warming is messing things up.

My sister said that in NC when they would get a speck of snow the whole city would shut down & that cracked her up.

I'm glad you got to enjoy the novelty and fun of the snow today *smiles*

That snow looks so gorgeous. We don't seem to get snow like that anymore over here in England. Build a huge snowman for me.
