This picture is of something that's rare for this area - show that sticks. Enough to actually make a small snowman. In fact, this was just the beginning. It continued snowing off and on for a couple of weeks and by the end we had about 14 inches at our hill top home. The kids were thrilled, and Lexie was happy to have an extra week of Christmas vacation because the schools were closed. It was pretty, but I don't like being snowed in!
