snowcalypse 2011

Ten inches. That's the official measurement for McDonald County's snowfall. In one day! I know, Minnesotans are snickering but that's a LOT for southern Missouri. My friends just to the south in Arkansas got 20 inches or so! Schools here have been closed for seven days straight and will probably not resume until Monday.

The good news? We're going to hit the 50s by Sunday and there's a hint of 60 for later next week. Kind of hard to believe all this snow will be (hopefully!) gone soon. Baxter has been enjoying playing in the deep powder -- he's practically swimming in it. It's pretty, and everything was glittering when it stopped snowing and the sun came out for a short time. Now it's just cold, with temps in the single digits and a below-zero windchill. Brrr. I'm ready for spring!

Photos tomorrow! Snow liked this only comes around once in a while and doesn't usually linger long. Thankfully!
