Frightful? No. Delightful? Yes!

Yeah! It's snowing! It's not accumulating much because it's dry, light snow and the east winds are blowing out of the gorge but it's still beautiful! Despite the fact that you can't really make a decent snowball and there isn't enough to really sled yet, Noah has been out trying all morning to do just that. I'm sure, if this weather persists, we will have more pictures but here is just a few to start.
Noah finds the few places that it does accumulate.

Oliver's attempt at a snow angel. Too bad it was in the street!
Snow isn't the only thing blowing around this morning.

Still in the gutter.

I fall down daddy!

Snowy roads, luckily they aren't that slick, not yet anyway.

I like this picture that Joel got because it kind of gives you an idea of how much the wind is blowing. The fuzziness of the picture is the snow swirling it's way down the road.

...makes me cold just looking at the pictures...that wind must go straight through you and chill you all the way to the bone. Looks frightful to me...and COLD!!

What in the world? That's the whitest sand I've seen, and why are the kids all bundled up?

That's funny, sand is exactly what I thought of when watching it blow around the streets!

I kind of figured your boys would be out trying to do something with the snow. However, your right..... Way to dry to make a snow ball. We are having the same wind effect, here. Burr With wind chill 6 degrees. Auntie K
