First Snow – 1-21-14
I have to eat a bit of crow, I was complaining earlier that they closed the schools, daycare, government before we even got a flake of snow. It did start snowing about 10:30 am. But really? Even the squirrel didn’t care.
Of course the snow picked up some and by 4:00 pm there was enough to go outside. ‘lil q was born in Sept ’11 – the winter of ’11-’12 was so mild, we never got to use the winter coat we bought her. [Fortunately a co-worker of mine’s daughter fit in it last winter and this winter it made its way to Boston to the co-worker’s cousin’s daughter.] Last winter was colder, but there wasn’t a snow fall that would allow us to go out and play. So this is her first real snow.
And since pictures are nice, but video is nicer – here are some videos:
We didn’t stay out too long, it was cold, the snow was a wet snow and we don’t have a proper snow suit for ‘lil q. So we came inside and had hot chocolate. Here’s what it looked like about 5:00 pm.
After we thawed out a bit, ‘lil q and I set out to make dinner. One advantage to a snow day, we had time to make a proper meal.
