Let It Snow

December 02, 2006


Snow covered Holly bush

Thursday we had the first snow storm of the year here in Kansas City. All day it threatened to snow and finally about 2:30 some little tiny flakes appeared in the air. An hour later it was snowing hard and before it tapered off in the night I got about six inches of the fluffy white stuff.

Friday the sun returned and most of the pavement melted clear, leaving a nice white blanket on the ground. Driving around today revealed that where I live was at the western edge of the storm, only thirty minutes travel was necessary to reach parts of town that looked as if no snow had fallen at all.
