I can't believe they didn't cancel your schools! Our were cancelled and there was very, very little anything. Think we were on the upper edge of that system and the rain had already passed mostly before the freezing came. It is nice to see a little snow now and then though, isn't it?
Our snow had no ice, so our roads were perfect. I will never forget all the happy faces of the children.
haha, well we (Brussels, Belgium) don't have cancelled schools for such an amount of snow either but we have chaos in traffic, EVERY single time. and public transport gets cancelled.
Nothing wrong with unexpected snow, only trouble is it never lasts long.BTW that was a cream tea in my post. Scones with Clotted cream & jam, you should have tea with it but we had fresh brewed coffee
Great word, scones.
There is something exciting about snow especially when you don't get it very often. Growing up we had frequent blizzards in New Jersey and the snow never melted til end of April.. The season's have changed and now we get a small snow storm maybe twice in the winter.
We live in New England so we get PLENTY LOL Good for them for not cancelling schools! Glad you enjoy it!
I love waking up to snow.
It was magical.
I'd miss a place that didn't have snow in the winter, yep it's a pain to shovel, but oh so beautiful to look at. So neat that the kids got to experience it first hand.
I wouldn't know how to function.
I enjoyed the day!
Very nice photos :)
I haven't seen a snowflake this year, it rains all the time, the temperatures are too high for the season and the first flowers try to come out !
It's scary to me that we are getting snow and you aren't.
Santa Barbara had snow in 1962. I wasn't alive yet, but I've seen photos. :-)
I can't think of a place that seems less snow-y than Santa Barbara...maybe Hawaii?
I'll bet the kids loved it! I honestly don't miss it, but it's only the first year that we've been away from the Midwest. Check with me in another two or three years. :)
We lived in Beaumont for seven years, and I remember having snow only once. It was a really big deal! I'm glad your snow didn't cause major problems. My Saturday Snapshot post features LOTS of snow during a visit to Banff.
i don't recall when we had snow last (though it does snow higher up in the highest mountains sometimes) in our area - San Francisco bay area
