The weather reports were right, it did really snow today. There was nasty, nasty rain all day, and then 2:30ish or 3ish it started coming down in big, fat, wet, fluffy white flakes. Then it turned into hail, then rain, then snow again, and then hail again. Go figure.
I’m from Chicago, I’ve seen snow before. But it was fun to see the little kids freaking out. The best thing about any winter anywhere is the moment when it actually starts to snow. It’s the three weeks later when it’s bitter and icy and stuff that are less exciting.
This photo isn’t from today–I snagged it from some internet person’s snow blog from some other year, since I didn’t bring my camera with me today and the news sources don’t have photos up yet, and there had to have some sort of illustration!
