Sat it began to snow around 10:30 AM and didn't stop until some time after midnight. The prediction for our area was "snow showers with a possible accumulation of 1-2 inches". We actually got about 7-8 inches, which is rather unusual. The air over the ocean is warmer than the air over the land, so we don't normally get more than an inch or 2. It was quite windy too, so the snow drifted in several places. Next to the garage you could see the grass poking out of the snow, while next to the driveway there was a drift about 2 feet deep. It was a great day to just stay inside and relax, which is exactly what we did. Spouse took a big nap (since he has a cold) and I watched TV and spent some time on the computer. Lots of HGTV shows and the Mecum Auto Auction.
Around 5:00 I decided to go for a walk in the snow. It was still coming down like mad. I bundled up (including ski goggles to keep the snow and wind out of my eyes) and walked around the neighborhood. It was eerily quiet but oh-so beautiful. Once back inside I slipped back into my flannel PJ pants, heated up left-over ziti for our dinner, and watched more TV and chatted with friends on Facebook.
It was a nice, relaxing snow weekend!
