And half the forecasters were right

All weekend we've been hearing

"Somewhere around."
"10 inches!"
"2-4 inches"
"Maybe just rain"

Mr. at Home went to the store and got home to immediately make a quick supper. When we sat down, he announced that the bad news is that it hadn't started snowing yet, but the good news was that the forecast still said snow. I got up to get some tea and noticed that the light outside looked rather...gray. I saw the fog and that the ground was covered in...


Lots and lots of snow.

In less than 2 hours, this is what it looks like outside.

This is what my car looks like since I can't park it in the garage because the seats are currently stored there while I wait for them to fix my tabletop so I have room to put the table back in the car so I can get it home. What, you didn't want to know all that?

The girls are beyond excited because its SNOW!! and it's still coming down thickly enough to promise some good accumulation by the morning. As I stepped outside to take the pictures, I noticed a flash going off across the empty lots. I wasn't the only one fascinated by the March winter wonderland we've got going on. I guess it's truly an "In like a lion, out like a lamb".
