First Snow

We had the first snow of the season overnight.  While the east coast is measuring snow in inches and feet, we would have to use millimeters to amount to any significant number.  It didn't even fully cover the grass.  In the eyes of a seven-year old though, we had a winter wonderland.  My Schnickelfritz dressed himself early with four shirts and two pairs of pants and announced he was prepared to tackle the elements.  

He stamped the front yard with a snow angel before heading to the garage to find a sled.  There is a slight hill in our back yard and I was surprised to see he was able to travel quite a distance considering how little snow we actually had.   In fact, I became a little concern because just past the barn it becomes a steep, tree covered ravine.  I could see Fritz getting braver and closer to the edge before "bailing out."
