Yesterday, we had our first real snowstorm of the winter. It started late Saturday night, or maybe very early Sunday, and we woke up to 5" or so of fresh white fluff. I got to go cross-country skiing three times! First, I took the dog, then my husband and I went on our town bike path after we dropped our son off to play snow football, and later on I went with my daughter behind our house on the trails there. All very different adventures - it was still "blizzarding" when I went early, with the dog. It was that sort of weather where colors disappear into grey and white. By the time I went with my husband in the early afternoon, it was still snowing, but lightly. It had stopped snowing by the time my daughter and I headed out, but still looked just beautiful. We ended up with about a foot of snow, and it is the light, easy-to-shovel kind - I love it.
