More from our snow day.......






Everyone had fun digging in the snow and throwing snowballs. Within 5 hours there was very little left to show that it actually had snowed at all. Sigh, it was fun while it lasted. We got a total of two inches. And it ended the 3,319 snowless days streak. We've had the odd flurry once a year for the past couple of years, but no measurable amount at the Birmingham Airport (where the stats are recorded) since January 28, 2000. Interesting bit of trivia.......

3,319-day snowless streak? WOW. This year really has been odd weather-wise just about everywhere, and that helps to prove it. Ths pics are great! Looks like the kids loved it.

WOW! I'd be happy to trade with you - the 8 or so inches we got today puts us about 2 feet over the average snow total for this date. I'm glad the kids got to play in the snow for a while, anyway!
