The first snow of 2010 has arrived! All week long, the forecasts have been calling for 2-4 inches of snow here in Middle Tennessee. For our area, that is a fair amount.
The girls, heck even John and I, were waiting anxiously last night for school to be cancelled. Where we live, just the thought it might snow, brings out the "Snow Bird"- a news channel's mascot who gives great news of school closings. Our county was one of the last ones to declare today a snow day- almost 9:30 at night!
The snow was expected to start falling early this morning, up until noon. We all got up and were so disappointed to see just a light dusting of snow just on the driveway. By now the weather reporters were saying 1/2-1 1/2 inches to fall today. I guess the weather system didn't come down like expected. The poor girls were looking outside the window praying this time when they looked, somehow the yard would be a white blanket. It wasn't until around 11a, that a slow steady shower of light snow began to fall.
Much to the delight of the girls, they rounded up all of their warm clothes and readied to go outside and play in what little snow there was. As of now, mid-afternoon, there is a light dusting of snow on the yard and enough on the driveway and trampoline to make some snowballs. The girls are outside playing with their friend Catherine. JT is sleeping soundly in the warmth of his crib. I'm here typing up our blog and ready to serve hot cocoa to the girls when they are finished playing and chilled to the bone.
