Today we settled back in, cleaned out the car, did a bunch of laundry, and played. Around 3 p.m. the sun dipped below the clouds and I shooed the kids outside. The sky was magnificent–bright blue on one side, with dark clouds on the other. Five minutes later the kids ran back inside, “It’s snowing!” Then they ran back outside. It was more bits of ice than powdery snow, but it stuck and there’s still a layer on the ground.
