Last year the kids wrote an essay about their favorite season and a surprising number of them said winter. The number one reason they sited winter was because of the snow which I thought was odd because you only get one or two snowstorms a year here (and wouldn't really count those as snowstorms). Even when there is barely a trace of snow you and see kids scraping the ground trying to get enough snow to make a snowball. What they usually get is a clump of ice, dirt and gravel; which they then hurl at their friend resulting in the inevitable trip to the school nurse. That's just a long way of saying it snowed of Friday and I liked it.
