I'm dreaming of a white Thanksgiving???

It's snowing here and not the kind of snow/rain mix that we've had here before. It's sticking to the ground and roads. We were told that it is a rare event for snow to hit us here. Lowest temperatures for this area are around 32 degrees, so snow rarely precipitates and when it does it lasts a short time as the temperature climbs a few degrees in the day. Last year the area was blasted with snow, we were told, but the people at church we spoke to told us that they haven't gotten snow like that in 40 years! The snow today is about 3 inches and it's still coming down off and on. Since there is no thanksgiving here, the kids are still in school and not able to enjoy the snow. The ladies at church say they "feels bad for the kiddies 'cause they go to school when the snow is a fallin' but when they comes home the snow's gone". That's my example of the local dialect that I'll have to write about later. Maybe today's snow will stick around a bit so the kids can play. It is quite pretty, though I imagine driving on the road is not fun here.

The pups love the snow! And I love that all I have to do is open up the back door and say "Outside" instead of walking them for 15 minutes on a leash in the cold weather!
