let it snow, let it snow!

YES!!

This morning, Adam crept over to my side of the bed where I was sleeping and gave me a kiss and said, "Cam, its snowing outside huge flakes. Go back to sleep, its early, but I wanted you to know."

But Adam did not know that at the word "snow", I will spring out of bed like a 4 year-old on a sugar high off of pixy sticks and throw on my boots and run outside to sprint around like a mad woman. Obviously, growing up in Louisiana, we barely had any snow, MAYBE once a year and usually more "slight ice" than "Snow" and EVERYTHING shut down for even the slightest frozen precipitation. No school, nothing was open. Things are a little different here.

So, Powers and I ran around and took pictures and then I went inside to take a shower. Well, upon exiting the shower, the electricity went out! So, I got ready in the dark sans hair dryer and Adam studied via head lamp. Who cares, its pretty outside.

Powers LOVES the snow. He sprints around and eats a bite, then sprints in some more circles then has another taste of snow. Its fantastic and I have pictures to post, but they are on my computer at home, and since the electricity is out, we can't hook up to the internet, boooo! I will post those later. Just know that it is beautiful and magical and I love it!

Thanks for the driving tips, ff! I rode with Adam this morning in the jeep and we did definitely notice the slippery road. Off to enjoy my snow-covered day!

No freaking fair. It's still in the 60s here. So lame. I hate global warming. But I am happy for you:).
