Let it Snow! Let it Snow! Hey, where'd it go?

We had our first snow day of the year here in Tennessee today. Ristow and I were very excited at the thought of actually getting to use the new sled that his Grandma and Papa got him for Christmas. A day off school was great. The threat of snow hung over everyone's heads as people headed to work this morning. Ristow and I waited and finally the rain turned to snow.

This is what it looked like..........................

I apologize to all those suffering under multiple inches and even feet of snow right now. But here in TN we have to take what we can get. Even if it is slush, rain and a few flakes mixed with a bit of dog poop (yuck) on a slippery hill. Sliding down the hill at Grammy's house with a little slush was good enough for an eager 4yr old. He loved it and then was equally excited about getting in the warm house for hot cocoa.
Of course within a half hour after sledding, every flake was gone. So sad. Maybe next time we will get something worth speaking of.
