snow

Finally...
on the afternoon of January 21st.
In Northern Virgina.
IT. FINALLY. SNOWED.
A pittance of snow, but flakes nonetheless.
If 4 flakes fall within the same hour, they usually close school.
I'm betting there will be no school tomorrow.
People freak here over the smallest amount of snow.
And as I say this, it took us over 2 hours to get home. People driving 20 miles an hour because of the slick snow. Lots of vehicles in the ditches. makes me glad that I have a good safe car and brand new tires.
But nothing freaks people out here like a little snow...
My kids wanna build snowmen. How can we build a snowman with like 2 cups of snow....
By golly, we'll try.

:)
