Not on purpose.
I don't know if Sam cried out or if my sleep-schedule is just permanently messed up, but I did wake up. I decided to look out the window, since our local weather man was calling for some serious snow in the early AM.
You know what I saw? My neighbor's yard looking exactly like I imagine it does every other morning at 5 AM. No snow. Not even any flurries. I was, understandably, disappointed, though not shocked. We're used to the "threat of winter weather" round here.
About an hour later, I woke up again. Yes friends, this was a satisfying night's sleep. Right.
Still, no precipitation at all. You know I was harboring bitter thoughts towards James (local weather man) for getting my hopes up.
Fast forward to later in the day. Went to get a hair cut, then Bob, Sam and I went to Big Mountain Coffee Co. Somewhere during that outing, it started. The beautiful onslaught of snow.
Beautiful but short-lived.
It came down pretty heavily for, oh about 4 or 5 hours. It let up but continued to fall for another hour or so.
And, get this...a little bit! even! stuck! (Are you sensing the dramatized excitement? Because when I say a little bit, I mean about 1/2-1 inch.) I'm not complaining though. Everything, especially the trees and bushes, looked really pretty for about 2 hours.
