So we got about an inch of snow overnight, coupled with a lot of wind. The drive to get the older 3 kids to school this morning was a bit of a challenge, but it wasn't horrible. What could normally be done in maybe 40 minutes took closer to an hour, but I took my time and didn't rush it.

Meanwhile, back at the ranch, er, house....
|My pathetic flowerbed. Maybe I can call it modern art|
|He wanted to go outside to play in the worst way.|
Then we took off to deliver the popcorn that Alex sold for Scouts....
|Within the city limits, by the way....|
|....and her friend.|
|It wouldn't be a normal day without getting stuck by one of these.|
|Heading back from a friend's house "out in the country".|
So that was our first snowpocalypse of the season. I'm sure that there will be many more with the way that the local media hypes up every single snowflake that may or may not fall. This one was actually a little worse than I expected, but it still wasn't much as far as I was concerned. It's going to be back up closer to 50 degrees tomorrow, so it's all going to be gone anyway....but I did hear a rumor that we might get some more snow on Christmas Day. I'll believe it when I see it though.
