We got our first snow yesterday and it kept up through the night--huge, fluffy flakes. Today, the sun was out and everything looks as though it was frosted. I could do without how cold it's gotten, but the view is spectacular. It's absolutely gorgeous outside.
A related inhale: we were supposed to get about a foot of heavy, wet snow, but we dodged the bullet with only an inch or so. This is a particularly good thing because a lot of drivers still don't have their snow tires on.
