SNOW!

Even multiple base layers cocooned in Gore-tex can't contain my kid-at-Christmas excitement. The snow piled up deep and often in northern WI this season, and we are enjoying the most white we've seen in nearly 20 years! I sink to mid-thigh, the cabin looks resplendent in its showy, ivory crown, and the plow just went by for a third time. Woke up to 4 inches of powdery delight and still unloading. Another foot by morning. Lovin' it! Calendar says first day of spring is just a few days away. Yeah, right. We might see green grass by, say, June.
