Then, yesterday, the snow started falling... and sticking!
We ended up with about an inch, just enough for a little sledding action.
It was D's first time in the snow (last year when it snowed, he was still just a little baby) and I thought he'd be as excited as the rest of us were! But, contrary to expectations, he got very upset about the snow sticking to his boots ("Boot. Snow. Dirty," was his mantra--even though he usually isn't bothered by things like this). You can see the beginnings of his discontent in the video below....
More snow is expected for a few days, so hopefully D will come around, and start to enjoy the rare gift of snow!
