We got snow this year!
Okay, it wasn't a *real* snow like I've gotten in other places that I've lived, or even like we've had here for most years, but it was at least enough to stick on the ground for a few hours.
Last year, we had a full 2 minutes of snow that I noticed, and for most of the winter there was not enough snow to snowshoe up at Paradise on Mount Rainier.
It was also the first real snow that either Max the cat or Sammy the dog have been in. Neither one wanted to walk out from under the patio roof to find out if that white stuff falling in big clumps was dangerous. Sam wanted back in the house pretty much immediately, whale Max wanted to sit there and look up at it falling.
By the time it was done, there was about 3 inches on the lawn, but 2 hours later and most of it is gone. Oh well, I think there is hope for a little more tonight.
