Our little bit of snow from yesterday melted away by the afternoon. I received a weather update from post that said it was supposed to snow 2 inches over night. When Brian got up this morning to get ready to go to Rothenburg for more flight training there was some snow on the ground and covering the cars but nothing impressive and no flurries were falling. So imagine Luke's and my delight when we opened his bedroom shutters at 10 this morning and snow was everywhere and huge chunks were floating through the sky! We broke out Luke's winter gear and headed out to the backyard to play. We stayed out there for about an hour - just enough time for Luke's cheeks to be bright red and my pants to be soaking wet from all the snow. Of course I captured it all on camera because that is what I do, but also because daddy missed our first big snow and I want to show him we took advantage of the fun weather.
