Perfect Snow

Well, we didn’t get the six inches of fluffy white stuff last night, but we did awaken to about three inches of terrific snow. Beck and I built a snowman — the first time I’ve done that in years — and lobbed the occassional snowball at each other. Fun, fun, fun.

After spending a big part of yesterday chainsawing the last remnants of the felled tree limbs, it was nice to be outside with a somewhat less odious mission. Aside from a quick shovel of the sidewalk and driveway, this was a day to just enjoy being out in the snow.

By far, this was the most hospitable snow we’ve had in a long time — no wind, temps right at freezing, and a heavy packing snow to play in. Now that’s a fine winter’s morning!
