One inch of snow to someone who lives in South Carolina would be equal to at least a foot of snow to someone who lives in New Jersey. So imagine how we felt when it started to snow around 4:00 Friday afternoon and was still snowing at midnight?
When I went outside shortly after 10:00pm, we had 5 inches in the front yard and the street was covered with a few inches too.
We spent some time outside yesterday afternoon building a snowman with our next-door neighbors and their little boy. The snowball was equal parts grass and equal parts snow. The boys had a great time rolling the snowballs and then the dads took over. The end result was a pretty decent size snowman.
This morning we headed back outside. Michael didn't want to wear the winter gear to go back outside. He went out for a brief amount of time and we made snow angels in the front yard.
I brought him back inside and brought Katie out for a few minutes. I put her down in the snow and she didn't like it at all. Once I got her sitting up, she crawled out of the snow to the porch and started to play with the snow. I think she may have liked the snow better than Michael today.
Of course, the sun was out today and most of it was melted by mid-afternoon. Just the kind of snow I like, the kind that is here just long enough for the kids to play in and then it melts away!
