The last big snow storm of the year rolled in … our biggest yet.
As the storm began, snowflakes as big as baseballs (no kidding) were the talk of the town. After last year’s “thundersnow” (the rare sight and sound of thunder and lighting during snow), I thought nothing could ever be as surprising.
The snow came fast, and within twelve hours 13 inches had fallen (and a few more throughout the day). My dad told me this is the kind of snow that comes only every ten years or so … I didn’t want to think about how old I’ll be when this happens again.
Joyful truth: Sometimes when the weatherman says 8-12 inches and you decide not to believe him you’ll get 13. Remember next time to have bread in the pantry, milk in the fridge, and salt for the porch … just in case he’s right.
