Snow Week – Day 1

This time of year, it is common for us to have some snow flurries and snow showers almost every day. But this week’s forecast hinted that we would see more than normal.

Our Monday forecast was for snow flurries with little or no accumulation (meaning an inch or less). Well, we ended up with about 3 inches of fresh powder. As we prepare for a serious snow storm on Wednesday and Thursday, Monday was just a day to enjoy some new snow.

Of course, that is just an invitation for Typhoon to give chase.
