The sky has opened up and dumped loads of snow onto us. We have gotten used to not having much snow since the mountains tend to block the storms from hitting us hard. Yesterday evening we received rain and snow but by the time we went to bed everything just looked wet and cold with no white covering. The schools called last night (yes, there is an automated system that calls parents to let us know) telling us that there would be no school today. We didn't inform David of this because he would have been up at 4 a.m. to take advantage of extra play time.
But during the night I woke up several times due to brightness that was streaming into our room. Looking out this morning I was amazed at the total coverage of snow on everything. It is so beautiful!
