Snow Day!!

I was so excited to wake up yesterday and find SNOW!!!!

I love snow and, being from California (ocean-level), I have never lived in a place that snowed. Experiencing snow has always been something that I went to see on a vacation. We would drive to Tahoe for the beautiful snow covered mountains and snowboarding. Never have I been at home, needing to go grocery shopping or do normal everyday things and had snow. I love it!

The bad news is this is probably all the snow that we will get this year (about 1/2 inch), and it is already melting in the sun.

The good news is I get to appreciate the fun of it and not really have to deal with an extended snow storm because I have seriously no idea how to live in the snow. Fayetteville, NC doesn't really get snow so this isn't something I have grown accustomed to since I moved here 3 years ago. I also missed the good snow storm last year because I was in California but this weekend made up for it.

It was mild and fun. My husband and I went for a walk in the morning and and we managed to make it to the bookstore.

This is a sheet of ice that froze over the window. We couldn't see out the window so we rolled it down to try and break it off...probably not the smartest thing to do but it had an interesting effect. The window went down but the ice stayed put in a perfect layer.

In the afternoon I decided I wanted to make a snowman but it had warmed enough that the snow became little balls of ice which refused to stick together. So instead I broke apart pieces of snow already stuck together and made myself a "snow buddy."

I hope everyone else is enjoying the weekend as much as I am.
