The Snow That Wasn't...

It's really not a big surprise to anyone that's been living here all of their lives.. The ingredients didn't quite come together to give us "Winter Storm 2010" as they predicted.

"Up to 3 inches" "icy patches" "snow bands moving across all day" Those were all things we've been hearing about for days.. and guess what? Nada.

Ok, maybe not nada, we did get some bands of snow and it was pretty, but at 37 degrees did they really think it was going to stick? I'm not a meteorologist but it was pretty clear to me that it was just going to fall and melt, and so it did.

Schools closed early and there was absolutely no way in the world to hide the possibility of this snow from the kids, as it was snowing off and on all day, but waiting for our 1/2" to 1" proved painful as the day worn on.

I believe this picture sums up the attitude of our house, if you can see, the Munchkin actually has her arms crossed in a very huffy manner after looking out of the window for the 1,463,oo4 time.

Ah bless her. I'm 23 and I feel exactly the same way. What's the point of having winter if you don't get a good dumping of snow!
