We expected three inches. We got beyond eight! Then I got a double gift by the snow clouds leaving and giving me sunshine at the day's end to try my hand at photographing in sunset snow. It was a dry, powdery snow that wouldn't make a snowball to save your life. Certainly not a snowman (despite our efforts). Honestly, it resembled FAKE snow more than real snow. I've never experienced a snow just like this one!
But it dazzled and sparkled and floated and made my heart skip a beat unlike any other snow I can recall.
