Snow place like home for the holidays (LAME, very very lame, SORRY)

Days 5 & 6 of the 25 days:  Snow Days!!

You guys! It SNOWED!!!

But, let me be clear, because in this area that can mean a lot of things...
When Bob Ryan calls for snow, the general expectation is for something between a slightly white-ish rain, microscopic flakes of cold that instantly disappear upon entering the atmosphere, fat wet balls of hard water that quickly turn to slush (or as I like to call it- traffic halting sign of the apocalypse), or, every 85 leap-years or so, we'll actually get two inches of packable, throwable SNOW.

Saturday we got enough of the real stuff to:
1.  Cover the trees in that awesome frosty dream-like state
2.  Make the season actually feel festive
3.  Finally motivate me to finish putting up the holiday decorations
4.  (and this is the big one!) Make an honest-to-goodness SNOWMAN*
Look at it:

*So, I obviously use the term loosely, because clearly I really mean "make an honest-to-goodness-hideous-muddy-leaf-encrusted-stuff-of-nightmares-man," but we take what we can get around here.

We had a few flurries last week, but not a real snow yet. I'm not ready for it!
