snow much fun

the snow started last night and continued all day today. I couldn't believe it snowed all day long!we think we received a total of 12" (based on our own scientific measuring). our family is probably in the minority-we love the snow. the snow seems to make the grey (that is michigan during the winter) all worthwhile. the snow covers up the yuk, adds a new color, makes ordinary items look almost pretty, and improves our moods just a bit.

so we were all out in it today-taking photos, making snowballs, throwing snowballs, using the shovels, blowing with the snow blower, warming freezing fingers, and getting some exercise.
