We had a freak coldsnap and it actually snowed down to the thousand-foot elevation last night. Holy snowflake, Batman! We woke to see the surrounding hills blanketed with an enticing little bit of the white stuff and were just THRILLED. I called my friend Maggie and begged her to go snowchasing with us. We plotted our route (which turned out to be a teensy bit illegal), did some hasty shopping to get a few last-minute snow clothes, then drove up and up and up, and actually found some dang snow. It was the first time Ree and Ro had seen it, and they had a ball. Ree laid down in the snow and grinned like a fool: Our slightly grungy 12-inch high snowman: Ro throws her first snowball (at me, actually): Cute little snowbunnies: The full set of pics, including a candy that Ro identified today as being "close" to TubaNuts, can be viewed as thumbnails, captioned small pics, or slideshow.
