We had snow today

We weren't planning on snow today. Last weather report I heard we were supposed to get some rain. I kind of wondered at that when I saw how long the frost on the grass was hanging on. Then I was knitting on the couch and through the curtains noticed some white stuff going by. So went to check it out. Sure enough big fat fluffy flakes were falling and because the ground was already cold, immediately set about sticking and accumulating. So here's the progression:

 
 
 
 
 
Normally the tables/chairs/BBQ are not out there. We won't talk about why they still are out. ;-)

The boys decided that today would be a great day to go snowboarding and had left before it started snowing here. They left the mountain at 5:30pm and I got a text message saying they were back at Luke's house at 10:30pm. A long day for them, but they're still young. ;-)

We haven't received the rain that was supposed to come in at 8pm to clear things up. Our mystery will be what we find in the morning. Is it going to stay cold enough that we'll wake up to the snow still here? Melted over night? If there's snow, most likely my spinning will be canceled for the day. We'll just have to wait and see. Hope all your loved ones are safe at home!

  2. Fun pix! I think you had more on the west side than we had on the east side, but I don't know. We were out at Edgefield, and there was lots out there, too!
