It's snowing in Astoria!

When I trudged down to the back 40 with the dogs for their morning pee at 5:15 a.m., I really thought I was still dreaming ... there was actually white stuff falling from the sky that sure looked a LOT like snow to my dazed and semi-conscious eyes. Upon standing outside in my nightie and slippers gazing dumbfounded at the sky, the very wet snow on my face and the very real chill in my bones made me finally believe I was awake. Yes! Snow!!

Being an old Yankee girl, I have an inordinate fondness for snow. I can't ever seem to get enough of it, still having Currier and Ives fantasies of lovely snow draped on the trees and eaves. Of course, the passage of years has made me forget the less savory aspects of snow like pouring hot water into car door locks, digging myself and/or my car out, frozen ears, and a perpetually sore ass all winter from repeated hard landings. Be that as it may, I still love snow.

Hi Elleda, We got snow too...although it was only a skiff and just enough to get your heart pumpin' thinking you'll get more.
I totally love the snow and sometimes find it hard to sleep the night of it's arrival just because of the anticipation and have been known to make midnite snowmen. Besides that it much better than the other kind of frozen precip. we get in out area. Freezing Rain.
