For the second time this winter we had snow on the ground. We haven’t had measurable snow for the last three winters so twice in the same winter is very exciting for us southerners. Unfortunately Carter has yet to build his snow man as neither snow yielded enough for him to scrape together three big balls of snow. Today’s snow actually came overnight, but it had completely melted by noon. Thus, not only was there not enough snow for a snowman, it melted in less time than it took to accumulate on the ground. Regardless, the snow was pretty for a few short hours this morning.
