March snow!  (3/21/12)

Eight inches deep!  (3/21/12)

Me:  "Tell me about snow, Elaine."
Her:  "It's white.  It's cold.  It's watery.  It makes me think of everything being white."
Auntie M.:  "What did you do in the snow?"
Her:  "I walked along and made footprints.  It felt great."

Trudy is skeptical.  (3/21/12)
