I had the unfortunate draw of getting breakfast for us this morning. I was all set to go until I stepped outside and saw this:
Not that it was bad. What was bad is that I was dressed in sandals without a coat. Since the wind was blowing I went back in to get a coat, hat, gloves, and boots. I haven't payed attention to the weather in days and the snow was totally unexpected.
It's been an unusual winter for me, but my husband says this is more of what he remembers growing up. It isn't that we've had a lot of snow. Most individual snowfalls have been an inch or less. We've just had a lot more days where we've had a measurable amount of snowfall. I stopped counting around 10 and it might be double that by now. Usually, from the seven winters I've had here, we have about 4 or 5.
Anyway, this was probably our biggest snowfall this season, but within five hours it was all melting.
