First snow storm of the year!

Tonight is the first major snow storm of the year. We’re expected to get between 9-12″ of snow. David and I spent some time on the patio and decided to go walk around downtown.

David’s favorite thing is to make snowballs and hurl them at me when I’m least expecting it. His giggling usually gives him away, though. Our walk was cold and beautiful. The streets were mostly empty except for plows and people wishing they were already home. The city has white Christmas lights down the main streets, which lit up the heavy snow coming down on us.

I think a lot of people believe that you talk about weather when there’s nothing else to talk about. But when we’re expecting lots of snow, there’s this feeling of overwhelming excitement that I can’t quite explain. I want to talk about the weather because the excitement grows bigger and bigger the more people I talk to.
