We've got about two inches of snow on the ground, but that's more than enough for the island school district to close the schools. There's no snow plowing equipment. Rain is expected by noon, though it's still snowing now.
But for a four year old who doesn't get to play in snow very often, it was great. Grandpa couldn't find the gloves he thought he'd brought from Anchorage. But, no matter. Her wonder and joy in the snow was worth cold hands.
It's thick, wet, heavy snow.
She needed to clear all the railings of the accumulated snow before she climbed up. I don't show her picture on here, so you have to take my word for how much fun she had. And she teased her grandpa by kicking off her boots while she was on the swing, so he had to empty the snow and put them back on her. Then she'd kick them off again. And again. Giggling the whole time.
Now we're inside and have had our delicious hot chocolate.
There was serious snow on the ground when I left Anchorage last Thursday.
