The beginning of our snow yesterday. This is taken from inside our home and those are the steps leading up to our home. Aren't the wreaths pretty? They were covered about 9 hours later in 7 inches of big, fat, fluffy snow. So Christmassy!

But, you see, we have a love/hate relationship with our local weather guy Doug Hill. We love to make fun of him because we hate his weather forecasts. For a few days and up until yesterday morning he kept saying we would be receiving about [no more than] 2 inches.

Needless to say we ended up with 7 inches. It is always this way. I don't mind the extra snow [in fact, bring it on!] - but we aren't the types to run to the store and freak out and buy out the stock of toilet paper, milk and eggs. We know that we will eventually get there [the next day] if we need something - but Doug is so bad at what he does that he completely screws it for people that need a real, true forecast.

Yep - 7 inches of snow is pretty darn neat - too bad it occured on a Saturday and no one gets to stay home from school or work with Skippy for a snow day.

We will wait. It will happen.

Yay for snow! Especially 7" of the stuff, that's so awesome!

You should send some of that up our way. (it's probably not often that someone in Canada asks someone from down your way for snow. lol) But I'm getting desperate.

Waiting for the snow here, but none in the forecast....

I have been feeling decidedly Grinch-ly lately, so snow and Christmas wreath pictures were definitely in the forecast for me! Thanks for sharing!
