It was snowing here this morning... not accumulating... just floating around in the sky like we were in a giant snow globe. Pipsqueak was wild with excitement which included breaking into song... a made-up-on-the-fly song called (you guessed it), "Snow!"

It wasn't snowing down in the village which is about 500 feet lower in altitude than we are. (We're at about 1100 feet above sea level.) I heard on local weather that some towns north of here are getting accumulating snow. The weatherman brought a snowball into the station. Jay Peak is reporting 2 inches.

It's hard to get a photograph of falling snow, but if you look at Pipsqueak's pants or the dark pines in the background, you can see it a bit. Does she look cold? It was 34 degrees this morning, but we're tough Vermonters; we don't need no stinkin' jackets. (Well, not for a two minute photo shoot.)

She looks cold though. I bet she ran inside right after the click... ? :)

But it´s great to see the kids and how much they love first snow! Mine do too and they are over 20 already!

I don't know whether to say "HA! Here it comes!" or feel a little sad, not having seen snow in several years... I remember the dreams I used to have before the first snow where I couldn't remember how to drive in it, but then the first snowfall would come and it would all come back to me... Have fun! April is just around the corner--NOT!!!

I'm so jealous! I've only seen snow a handful of times in the last 10 years, and that's because I wasn't at home. Some would call me crazy, but I'm tired of southern CA weather (or lack of it).

Snow. Wow. We'll be getting it here in Chicago before I know it. Wow. Time flies, man.
