Even getting a dusting of snow is exciting here so 6-7 inches is a big deal. The kids were thrilled to wake up to snow the morning after Christmas. They had a hard time waiting until warm clothes could be found to go out. It's been a long time since we lived somewhere we expect much snow so there was lots of digging through closets and the garage in search of things to wear. Luckily, Colin still had some things he has outgrown that the girls could wear.
