We got snow!

Took long enough, until the second half of January, but it finally came.

Took long enough, but I’m actually writing about it!

Remember, in my field, snow means work rather than a day off. Also, I was getting ready for a visit from my brother and sister-in-law. More on that within a few hours. (Yes, ladies and gentlemen, two posts in one day. And yes, the next one has been almost ready to go for a week.)

A few weeks ago, we had some flurries. Not really picture-worthy except for Yeti.

Then, there was a little snow, two Wednesdays ago (Jan. 20).

Just a dusting. Didn’t have to do much but look.

New car. The windshield wipers did everything

But the big stuff came last Friday (Jan. 22).

Pretty!

Yes, it’s still a big deal for me. I lived in Florida for about ten years. I hadn’t seen snow in about four years, since a cousin’s bat mitzvah in Pittsburgh. And the news makes such a big deal about it anyway. I have no apologies.

Yeti loved it! She hadn’t seen snow in years but remembered what to do and spent more time outside than usual.

I didn’t know there would be so much snow, so early in the morning, so I ended up working from home.

This would’ve been the better of the cars to drive.

You can’t tell there was a sidewalk and street under there, somewhere.

Luckily, Daniel and Jennifer would get to see it when they visit, and ski in fresh stuff in North Carolina.
