Usually when we get snow, it doesn’t even fully cover the ground. Grass can still be seen and the roads are fine to drive on. Not today! I woke up at about 4:45am and saw the snow coming down. It’s 8:45 and still coming down! Schools are cancelled, the Army Man is off of work, and we're ready to head outside. I'll be back to actually post this when I have some pictures to share.
We're back from outside and we had a lot of fun! I was surprised by how windy it was, and how much it was still snowing. Those from the North, please do not mock our pathetic attempts at snow-appropriate clothing.

I also have to take a moment to be serious. Today is a special day for another reason, although not a happy reason. My paternal Grandfather passed away this morning in Pennsylvania. He was 96 years old and a wonderful Grandpap. I didn't know him as well as I would have liked since we lived so far apart, but he was always so nice to talk to. If you could get him really talking, he had some great stories too. He traveled with our family frequently and I remember playing tennis with him several times as a child.

I once interviewed him for a paper I had to write for history class. One of the questions was what did he think had changed the most since he was born in 1912. I thought for sure he would say something about TV or computers or something along those lines. He said it was people who had changed the most. I've always remembered that.
He will be missed, no doubt about it.
