They were predicting possible wintery mix for this afternoon or evening, but I didn't really believe anything would happen.

But, at about 3:30 this afternoon, I looked out the window and saw it: SNOW! I yelled "Hey A, look out the window". He looked and hollered SNOW. Not much at that point, just a few wispy flakes.

Then a few minutes later, I looked again and it was coming down harder.

Here's A checking out the snow. And catching some in his hair...

By 4:30 or 5, we had a nice little coat of snow on the deck, but not much anywhere else.

But it kept coming down, sometimes pretty hard and fast. By dinnertime the deck looked like this:

M tried to make a snowball - well, he DID make a snowball, but he said it wasn't very good snow for snowballs. It seemed to me more like fluffy ice.

Here as the sun sets is what the back yard looks like. Very pretty!

Unfortunately, it is now raining and washing away most of that pretty snow. The predictions have been at various times for:
wintery mix
rain/freezing rain

Who knows what it will do overnight and what it will look like in the morning. They are saying the temp will hover at 32, so the bridges and overpasses may be bad in the morning. My guess is about 50:50 for a snow day, but without any snow. It may be an ice day or it may be fine but cold and wet.
