The First Day of Winter

Now, technically speaking, the first day of winter is December 21st, however I'd like to call it January 28th. Yesterday morning we woke up to this...

The first actual snow of the winter! It was beautiful! When you stepped outside it was so quiet and bright! But the best part was NO SCHOOL! You see, Port Angeles isn't equipped for mass snow removal, so when it does snow the whole city just kinda closes down. I did, however have to go into work at 11 am, but I still got to enjoy the morning off with the snow.

Later than evening, Julian wanted to play in the snow again. We bundled him up again and in about an hour he managed to make 15 snowballs in the front yard. He lined them up nice and neat and then proceeded to throw snowballs at the house till we noticed what he had done. He was so proud of his work! It was quite a feat you know... snow is heavy and cold!

This morning, sadly there was no new snow. School and work started on time, *tear*, but we did get to enjoy one snow day this year.

Amazing!!! I love an unexpected snow. It happens about once every 15 years here on the Central Coast of California. Thanks for checking in Sarah! I can't wait to hang out and celebrate your big day!
