We finally had a true snow storm this winter. Last year, we had just a dusting once or twice, but this year we have had 3-4 snow storms come through and one of them was significant. During that storm we ended up with about 4-6 inches here at the house! The most snow we have had since moving here almost 5 years ago.
It was enough snow for me to bundle up JT in a snowsuit that we purchased in a bundle of clothes last year before he was born. JT didn't quite get the reason why we placed him on the snow and snapped several pictures of his first snow. However, he did love looking out at the snow covered yard through the window and inside the warmth of our home.
The snow lasted several days, and the girls being out of school for a total of 5 days from this one storm. After a few days, the sun broke out and we all worked at making a large snowman. It took almost 2 hours to shovel, pack, and shape our 6 foot snowman. We decorated his face with radishes, red leaves, scarves, and a Beech High School flag.
