Yesterday was the first snow. It was an Arkansas snow. Light dusting, little accumulation and gone by 10 AM. Still that didn't stop the excitement. The kids were in my room at six-thirty. It snowed! It snowed! It snowed! We need gloves, hats, scarves, coats, socks, boots, mittens, lots of shirts, etc etc etc. They bundled up with everything we owned. (by now the temp is probably above freezing). They go out and play. It isn't even 7 AM yet. I looked around our neighborhood. A few getting in their cars for work. No one playing. Except yep, the Arkansans. I mean snow is snow, right?
Josh tells a story of when on his mission in Estonia it snowed and he started bombing his companion with snowballs. The companion was from Idaho. WHAT was Josh doing??? Hey, it's snow!!!
