Let it snow!

I absolutely love snow and always have. When I was a little girl and snow would be in the forecast, I'd constantly go to the back door, turn on the patio light and look out, just hoping to see some sign of snow. I'd always get so disappointed when we were supposed to get snow, and it didn't happen, or it only snowed a little bit. I also have fond memories of getting up in the morning when it had snowed and listening to the radio to see if school was canceled. I'd always cheer when my schools name would be on the list of canceled schools.

Snow was in the forecast yesterday, and even though I'm 26 years old, I still get giddy and excited! It started snowing last night sometime around eight, and everything was white when I woke up this morning. My mom went out to shovel the driveway (she loves shoveling!) and she thought we'd gotten about 3 inches of snow. It has continued to snow and is still snowing now, although the flakes are very tiny. I'd estimate that there's 4 or 5 inches of snow on the ground right now. (Although, it's hard to tell since I'm eyeballing it from the inside.) It's definitely not as much snow as I would would like, but I'm just glad that there's enough snow to cover the grass and make everything look pretty. I love having a huge window in my room so that I can enjoy looking at the snow.

I'm not sure why, but the county that I live in always seems to get the shaft when it comes to getting snow. My mom is wondering if it maybe has something to do with the rivers in the area, but we always seem to get considerably less snow than the other counties in our area. I'll take all the snow I can get, but I don't like drawing the short end of the stick!

I hope everyone is having a wonderful day!

Heather, I too love the snow and I am going to be 49 and I still cheer when snow is in the forecast! And I also get up at night and peek out to see if it has started yet. And I also cheer as loud as the kids when school is closed! :)

When we lived in Missouri we noticed the same thing about the lack of snow. It seems to also happen in the spring with the bad weather -- it always seemed to go around us! Not that I want bad weather the same as I want snow but we did notice it.

Wishing you lots more snow this winter! :)
