a proper snow this time! none of that "light dusting" of last month. this one brought somewhere between 4 and 8 inches, depending on how dramatic you want to be, and absolute mayhem all throughout the afternoon yesterday. we just aren't capable of dealing with snow especially when it comes that fast. the neighborhood kids and i spent an hour in front of our large front windows drinking hot cocoa and watching vehicles try to make it up the hill in front of our house. you would think after the second attempt they would give up but lucky for us, bored and stuck inside, they continued to fail over and over again. after a night of a rain/sleet mix it wasn't much fun at all today. wet and heavy and crunchy, almost the exact consistency of a snow cone. mmm i should have thought of that earlier.
