Snowing in Northern Virginia!

Upon moving to the D.C. area, I was surprised, and pleasantly so, that it doesn't snow here as much as it does in Nebraska. Not even close.

Because when you grow up with icy roads and mounds of snow that you get stuck in, it's nice to have a break from the nuisance it can be.

In the past 4 winters, I have seen maybe a foot and a half of snow total. It typically doesn't stick, and even if it does, it's soon to melt and dry in a couple of days.

But although I'm not a fan of prohibitive snow, I do like a little dusting every now and then.

Like yesterday.


The neighbor kids were thrilled Saturday morning. They rushed outside before it all turned to slush.


This sledding picture makes me laugh, though. These children deserve a real snow.

We heard a thump and saw Lyn throwing snowballs at the living room window!


The right amount of snow can be fun.

{What wasn't fun about yesterday was needing a new battery for the new car. My guy friend was outside for far too long putting it in. We had to drive to his house and the hardware store to assemble a wrench long enough to tighten one annoying screw. Three hours later, it was finally done. Somebody will be getting a big batch of chocolate mint cookies this week.}

I am in Salt Lake City and we got 6 inches in the last 24 hours. It is very pretty but don't want to drive in it.
